A slow and steady chair yoga practice appropriate for ALL bodies! A little talk about the breath, the power of simply noticing sensation, and the benefits of calming the nervous system, followed by a practice you can do from your chair (an armless chair is best) at any time.
Brand-new to yoga and need to start slowly? You can do this whole class from your chair! An armless chair is ideal so you can move freely. The pace is slow, the cueing is easy to follow, and the energy is so sweet even the bees tried to join for this practice! Focus on breathing deeply and being curious about how you feel. De Jur will do the rest! Enjoy the calming for your nervous system, the quieting of your mind, and a deeper awareness of what your body needs to feel at ease.
We will share time together exploring yoga from our chairs. Breath work wrapped around gentle twists, folds, hip openers and more to create mobility, spaciousness and body awareness. An armless chair is preferred...any chair will, do placed on your mat. Suitable for all, with a focus on accessibility for older adults. All bodies welcome.
