Class Descriptions

Yoga
Build strength, balance and flexibility while creating a higher state of mindfulness. This gentle and sometimes invigorating class will help manage stress as you tune into your mind/body connection. Class may include both standing and mat yoga poses.

Chair Yoga
Receive all of the benefits of yoga from the safety of a chair. This class will focus on posture, flexibility, proprioception, mindfulness and mobility from a seated position.

Chair Yoga and Standing balance
Standing time is associated with improved cardio-metabolic health, and a lower risk of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease. This class encourages participants to practice standing balance exercises in a safe environment following a seated mobility session.  

Movement for Bone Health
Individuals de-conditioned by cancer treatment and those who have osteoporosis/osteopenia can be prone to falls and fractures. This standing class will emphasize strength training to help increase bone density. 

Core Fitness
Core exercises improve balance and stability by training the muscles in the pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This class will be performed standing and lying on a mat.

Chair Fitness for Lymphedema and Neuropathy
Lymph fluid relies on movement and the contraction of your muscles to make it flow. This class will address the movements necessary to aid the lymphatic system and stimulate receptors of the hands and feet to help reduce the pain and symptoms related to neuropathy.

Restorative Yoga
Practice restorative poses designed to relax and restore the whole body. Each pose will be held for a period of time to release tension and deepen relaxation. Class may include both standing and mat yoga poses.

Chair Yoga and Guided Relaxation for Stress Relief
Science has now identified that stress causes us to age more quickly. Learn stress reduction methods in this fully guided practice of seated yoga postures followed by a guided relaxation practice.
