This class takes traditional yoga postures and techniques and adapts them to be done while seated in a chair or while utilizing a chair for support. This is a great alternative for someone who may have trouble getting up and down off of the ground, someone recovering from an injury, or someone who uses a wheel chair. However, this gentle practice is open to everyone.
