Chair Yoga beginning in March at Dominican Center at Marywood

Are you interested in yoga, but would like a gentle class to begin? Then Chair Yoga is for you. In this safe and supportive class you will gently move your body using a chair to help you cultivate flexibility, strength, and balance. The chair will serve to assist you in exploring seated movements, standing/balancing poses, and as a tool to help you get up and down from the floor (should you need assistance). Deep breathing and rest will be woven throughout. You will leave feeling refreshed and energized, yet calm and relaxed. No need to be self-conscious. This is a great group of people who would like to know more about yoga and are reluctant to go to a class. Find out if chair yoga is for you. Come to one or all sessions. Cost is $10.00 per session if you register in advance by phone (616.454.1241 Option 5) or online. Walk-ins are welcome price at the door is $12.00. Click on date, or dates, below and register now. We look forward to seeing you in this new class.
