Our lives have suddenly become as we have never experienced before. Many of us are either under lockdown or self-quarantined. Many of us are now working from home which means very little physical exercise. To help you stretch and relax the mind and body, while confined indoors, Divine Heart Center is offering a free live online Senior Citizen Chair Yoga session every week.
Poses are done seated in the chair and the chair is used for support during standing and balance poses. The class is custom-designed and modified so that even those with health restrictions, decreased range of motion, and physical challenges can enjoy the benefits of a yoga practice.
Online yoga practice requires you to be your own best teacher- one who knows your body the best and hence can best gauge the safety of the yoga practice within your personal physical limitations.
