Dynamic Chair Yoga with Padma
Originally Chair Yoga was introduced to the fitness world as a modified version of Hatha Yoga for those who have health implications and the elderly. Now it has become a mainstream form of yoga. According to Yogapedia, almost any traditional yoga pose or move can be replicated and altered to accommodate Chair Yoga. It is ideal for those with limited range of motion, suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or other conditions that prevent practicing traditional yoga. By performing poses while sitting on a chair, the body gains an increased range of motion. Poses are accompanied with pranayama or breath practice. Increased awareness of breathing reduces anxiety and calms the mind.  Participants will notice improved flexibility, increased range of motion, and greater breathing ability.

Gentle Yoga with Michelle 
 
Hi! I’m Michelle and I am thrilled to share Deep Stretch Tuesdays and Gentle Yoga Thursdays here at the Tree Tops!
When I first started yoga, I was looking to deeply stretch the stiff, tight places in my body caused by years of stress, injury, lack of proper self-care and most recently, aging. What I have learned has been profound. This practice teaches the importance of tuning into myself and my body, all while gaining flexibility, strength and balance. Yoga is providing me with tools to lead a healthier, more peaceful life; one where I am learning to be more mindful and prioritize my well-being. I encourage you to do this, too! You are worth it!
In Tuesdays Deep Stretch class, we will focus on longer passive holds of poses to create more flexibility and range of motion. In Thursdays Gentle Yoga, expect to slowly explore floor based and seated poses for the majority of class with some fun, standing and balance poses, too! We move with ease between poses, making the practice accessible for all. Both classes are great for beginners or anyone looking to increase mobility, flexibility and balance.
All are welcome, invited and encouraged to attend! See you on the mat!
