Parents and caregivers
Chair yoga classes provide down time from the hectic pace of parenting or caregiving. Chair yoga also provides a release from stress and ways to handle difficult situations.When you feel stronger, calmer and more flexible in your body and mind, you can experience more energy in your activities.

As important as physical healing is, the mental part of healing is just as important. Chair yoga can help the mind to connect with the body’s needs as we heal, bringing an awareness of the areas that need that strength and nourishment from the mind.
