Gentle Chair Yoga: Stay Healthy and Happy – ONLINE

with Swami Vidyananda, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT and Special Guests

May 1 - 3, 2020

Gain all the benefits of Yoga and mindfulness with Gentle Chair Yoga, a helpful practice after injuries, if you’ve put on weight, or if you simply feel out of shape. It benefits people struggling with the symptoms of health conditions, such as high blood pressure, arthritis, depression, insomnia, fatigue, and chronic pain.

This weekend will also feature strategies to help deal with the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic. Chair Yoga can boost your immune system, help relieve anxiety, stress, and depression.

If you’ve tried a Yoga class and felt worse afterward, you may have given up on Yoga. With Gentle Chair Yoga, you’re in for a treat!

With the aid of a chair, you will learn:

  • A balanced set of Chair Yoga poses plus options and variations
  • Easy breathing practices to boost immune function, for pain control and to uplift your mood
  • Simple tools for mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation

No getting down on the floor, no complicated movements, just increased resistance to illness, plus greater mobility, vitality, and peace. Now is the time to experience the benefits of Yoga for yourself.

I really enjoyed the organic flow of the program. Swami Vidyananda listened to the group and was more than happy to steer the direction of the conversation to the group’s needs. It felt very personal.—Past Participant
