Chair yoga for seniors and those with limited mobility

Thursday, June 23, 2016 - 11:00am - 12:00pm

Yoga is great for adults of all ages, especially seniors. Studies have shown that yoga can be extremely helpful when it comes to combating stress, fatigue, and pain. Some yoga poses increase core strength and balance, which reduces the risk of fall-related injuries. Other poses can alleviate senior-related health issues such as menopause. 

Join Bonnie Harvey from Inner Focus Yoga for a fun hour of Chair Yoga!

All poses will be done with the use of a chair. Please bring your own strap (if you do not have a yoga strap, you can use 2 neck ties or a bath robe tie).
