Adaptable Yoga for Many Abilities Using a Chair: A 6-week Online Series with Katie Blecker (Jan 2021)

CAD$119.70Purchase required to enroll

This 6-week LIVE online series is ideal for beginners, older adults & seniors, or anyone else looking for a gentle, accessible, and therapeutic yoga class. Chair yoga is a great way to explore the benefits of a yoga practice without needing to get up and down from the floor, bear weight in the hands, or over-stress the body. Any kitchen chair with back support and ideally no arms will work. You can also use your wheelchair or walker if you have one.

Each class will include beginner-friendly breathing techniques to help manage stress and anxiety, as well as a gentle movement-based practice focused on functional strengthening, balance, and stretching. Throughout the series we will explore both seated and standing work, however if a fully-seated practice is better suited to you, options for that will also be provided.

These classes are designed to offer yoga in a way that is approachable, accessible, and pressure-free. Folks with injuries or disabilities are welcome. Classes are hosted live on Zoom (you can download the app for free). If you cannot make it to the class live, a recording will be emailed to you for use within 7 days.

Wednesdays, 10:00-11:00am, Jan 6th-Feb 10th.

$114+tax before Dec 31st, $126+tax after.

There is one spot available for financial assistance in this course. Email jane@oceanandcrow.ca to apply.
