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 Elise 
Tuesday's Gentle Yoga is a class designed for those new to yoga, or for those who feel very restricted in their bodies. Movements are slower and poses are held longer.  The entire class is normally on the mat without doing any standing poses.  The focus is to link breath, mind and body together to try to create more space in each body to allow easier movement in day to day life.  Modifications are offered and encouraged so each student feels safe, encouraged and invited to move in a way that is best for his/her body.  Props (yoga blocks, yoga straps, blankets and bolsters) are used to allow better form and easier movement on the mat. No prior yoga experience is needed.
 
Thursday's Gentle Yoga class is similar to Tuesday's in that beginners and those who feel restricted in their bodies would do well in this class. Poses are held longer and the class moves slowly.  Standing poses are used in this class to help with balance and strength, but a majority of the class is on the ground not standing.  The focus is to link breath, mind and body together as to try to create more space in our each body to allow easier movement in day to day life. Modifications are offered and encouraged so each student feels safe, encouraged and invited to move in a way that is best for his/her body.  Props (yoga blocks, yoga straps, blankets and bolsters) are used to allow better form and easier movement on the mat. No prior yoga experience is needed.
