Adult/Senior Programs

Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga will run for 6 weeks beginning March 25th through May 6th (No Class on April 15th)
Chair yoga is designed to be a low impact exercise, where participants will use a chair for balance and support. Utilizing body weight as a guide, we will bend, stretch, and sweat to some fun upbeat music!
Postures will consist of sitting on the chair or standing near it. Participants will not be laying on the floor.  There will be a brief meditation after each session. Meditation is a fantastic source of stress relief that anyone can practice anytime!
REQUIRED ATTIRE: Participants must wear appropriate clothing each week. Shorts/ pants, T-shirts, socks and sneakers would best suit the participants. The Recreation Commission runs its programs under the safest possible conditions. Participants are urged to carry some type of medical coverage, in the event of accident. Classes will run up to six weeks. Bringing a water bottle is recommended.
