WHOLE-BODY CHAIR YOGA MOVEMENT & MEDITATION
8 WEEK COURSE
COMMENCE DATE: SEPTEMBER 9TH 2022
VENUE: THE WATERSHED, KILKENNY
TIME: 11:15 AM
Using a chair for seated postures, supporting standing postures, seated somatic movement practice, breath practices, meditation, visualisation, and much more. I love this practice so much as the chair is an amazing tool for support, brilliant for exploring good alignment, balance, and coordination, and super for maintaining good posture. I use extra props like yoga blocks and yoga belts when we need them for specific exercises. Chair yoga can be done anywhere, anytime and relief can be found instantly with one single pose. I find it really useful at the airport and on the airplane, especially on a long flight. Much of what can be done on the floor can be adapted to the chair practice.
Many students that don't want to get up and down from the floor because of different health concerns find this practice perfect and on some occasions, some students, after practicing chair yoga for some time, decide to move back to the floor practice once again but a lot don't as they love this class.
It's a super inviting way into the practice and provides a place of community, friendship, and social interaction. Great friends have been made over the years, it's beautiful to see happening. In the present group I have a variety of ages, say from 38 to 88 years young and nobody feels out of place, we are all one. It's welcoming, fun, friendly, and social and my students look forward to it every week. They give out when I go on holiday so that is a good sign.
Chair yoga has progressed over the last 10 years and is getting very popular which is good news. The practice has given so much hope to many people that thought they could not practice yoga again. It gives hope......
Many of the students say they don't know what they would do without it because they can move more freely, they are in less pain, and have a more positive outlook on life, with smiles on their faces. I was guided to this sacred practice when I completed the "Yoga of the Heart" certification In Austria in 2009, specifically designed for cancer and cardiac rehab patients. It's evolved since then into a beautiful community. Please tell your friends all about it and direct them to this page.
