Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. It is in the process of being recognized formally as a type of yoga distinct from other types, such as Iyengar Yoga or Ashtanga yoga. Often the poses, or Asanas, are often adaptations of Hatha yoga poses.
Benefits of Chair Yoga
Yoga has been shown to improve overall health, prevent and (even in some cases) reverse disease when practiced regularly as a lifestyle. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that it can therefore lend its benefits to those with mobility issues. Here are some of them:
* Improved Strength
* Improved Flexibility
* Improved proprioception.
(Proprioception is the skill of knowing where your body is in space, and coordinating your movements accurately. )
* Reduced stress and improved mental clarity.
*Chair yoga can lessen the impact of chronic illnesses and pain.
*Improved stress and pain management
Chair yoga (and yoga in general, really) includes breath work, which can help people not only with stress management but also for coping and managing pain. Through meditation and paying attention to your breath, you can help your body and mind to cope with the pain of an illness or condition you may suffer with.

Yoga Nidra Meditation
Also known as "yogic sleep", Yoga Nidra is a guided relaxation practice where the mind enters a deep relaxation while remaining conscious. In this sleep-based meditation practice, by withdrawing from the senses and disengaging from the external world, we enter into a state of "being" rather than "doing".We connect to our sense of being whole, unlock the intuitive ability of our systems to heal, and set powerful intentions to change our relationship with stress, pain, and unhelpful habitual patterns.
Benefits (**great for brain injuries and PTSD**)

Yin & Tonic
Monday, Wednesday & Friday 8am
Thursday & Sunday 7:30pm
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time. Asanas are held from two minutes to five minutes or more. The sequences of postures are meant to stimulate the channels of the subtle body known as meridians in Chinese medicine and as nadis in Hatha yoga.
Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, its goals are awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
