One of the great things about yoga is that it is so adaptive to different populations with diverse physical abilities and needs. Though the popular image of yoga is of a young person twisted up with apparent ease like a pretzel, those who are older and less fl exible can enjoy a yoga practice just as much, and potentially benefi t from it even more.
Chair yoga is a gentle style of yoga you can do from a (mostly) seated position that also incorporates the breathing and mind-body benefi ts of a traditional class. Chair yoga adapts traditional yoga poses so that they can be done with a chair for support, making yoga more accessible for people who cannot stand for long periods. Anyone with arthritis, back, knee, hip or shoulder issues, or any physical limitation, can benefi t from a gentle chair yoga. It’s yoga for every body!
Chair yoga is available at Yoga SRQ, which is owned by Robyn Marin, E-Registered Yoga Teacher. Hours are Fridays in March from 2 to 3 p.m.
Location: 5900 S. Tamiami Trail, Suite F, Sarasota. To register and learn about the special four-week session cost, call 941-955-4777 or visit YogaSRQ.com.
