Chair Yoga Explained

As you relax in your comfortable chair and I guide you through your chair yoga practice, you will feel your mind become calmer as your physical tension lowers. A chair yoga practice can help with strength and flexibility, without the effort of mat work. Traditional yoga poses are modified to be done comfortably in a chair.

A key to all yoga movement and awareness is in our breath. In chair yoga we work on deep, relaxing, balanced breathing, as we move through our asanas, or traditional yoga poses.

Each class is designed to accommodate any concerns or health issues students have, to tailor the class to every person's level of comfort, enabling them to have a gentle, safe yoga experience as they move through the seated poses.

People of all ages and walks of life can benefit from Chair Yoga to help their minds and bodies. Whether you are looking for help with flexibility, balance, or a calm, focused mind, Chair Yoga can help you!

Success Stories

I have been taking chair yoga classes with Jen for almost a year. My balance and strength in my legs has grown so much stronger! And my posture is so much better! I am so much more aware of how my body feels as I use my muscles. I enjoy her quiet guidance through the movements, since I had never done a yoga class before taking chair yoga with Jen. I feel comfortable in the class.

I was always unsure about doing a yoga class, because I have arthritis issues and getting up and down off a mat is not comfortable for me.
I tried chair yoga with Jennifer Jean and I immediately loved the relaxation of the mind and body she brings through her guidance, without the discomfort of mat work. The chair is great for stability and support! I have also learned how to calm my mind whenever I feel stress, by using the yoga breathing that I have learned in her class.
