Chair Pilates & Yoga

Designed for students with physical limitations getting up and down from the floor in regular Pilates MAT and Yoga classes, its especially great for seniors, however for certain health and physical conditions this class may not be appropriate for you especially if you have disc injuries or pre existing back injuries as this class is performed mostly sitting on chairs. We also include many standing exercises.

This class puts focus on building muscular strength and endurance without stress on joints, back strength and maintaining good posture. The aim is to give more ease in your everyday life activities such as walking, stair climbing, gardening and sports. Exercises are done in a chair and some standing to improve your balance. Focus is on breathing, spinal alignment, shoulder mobility and stability, arm strength, balance, core strength. You will achieve greater body awareness and confidence.

This is a challenging and fun class for all.
