Yoga (Older Adult Chair Yoga)

Older Adult Chair Yoga (Sherry) 

Why try yoga?

  • Improve your mobility, strength, balance and vitality.
  • Explore the breath and relaxation.
  • We work hard with our bodies, and learn to rest fully. Your experienced instructor, Sherry, will give options for older adults with mobility or other health issues.  Chairs will be handy for use as yoga props, or for assistance with balance.  Yoga is about connecting with your body and breath, and MINDFULLY moving in safe and healthy ways, for the long haul.  You will gain confidence as you explore the movement.  All participants must have a current SCA membership (just $20/year).
