WHAT IS CHAIR YOGA WITH JAHNE

Chair Yoga is a specially designed yoga program for people with mobility issues and utilises a chair rather than a floor mat. It is one of the gentlest forms of yoga available and does not require participants to get up and down off the ground. It’s a great option for those in older age or if you’re coming back to exercise after an injury or time away.

Class exercises work to develop core strength and improve balance. Students deepen their flexibility and in time, achieve better mobility. Relaxation techniques enhance wellbeing and improve mental clarity. Students leave class feeling flexible and strong.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

At our classes you’ll feel welcome in a small, friendly class. Students feel comfortable working at their own pace and ability.
