Who is Chair Yoga for?

I get this question a lot.  Who is Chair Yoga for?

Is it for frail seniors?

Well,  Yes and No.

Chair yoga is for anyone who cannot or wishes not to get down on the floor.

Chair yoga is used in the classroom at schools for helping with focus and attention!

Chair Yoga is used for getting all the benefits of a regular yoga practice!

Chair Yoga is used as a tool for helping with balance, when one is doing standing yoga poses.

And yes, chair yoga is used for seniors, residential life, nursing homes, senior centers and more.
