CHAIR YOGA INFO.....
IF YOU CAN'T
SIT ON THE FLOOR TO
DO YOGA?
TRY...
"GENTLE CHAIR YOGA"
_____________________________________________

CHAIR YOGA is a gentle form of yoga
promoting relaxation and proper breathing techniques
and is designed for “all levels of fitness!”  

Is is designed for those who may have
suffered injuries,are overweight,
or have limited range of motion due to aging
or disabilities can benefit.

It is also beneficial for those with many health issues
including hypertension, insomnia, neck and back pain,
anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue syndrome.  

These “Chair Yoga” positions (asanas) can help
stretch your hands, wrists, arms,
upper back, hips, low back and feet.

These Yoga exercises will strengthen your abdomen,
deepen your breath, lower high blood pressure,
can eliminate stress with meditation techniques promoting
relaxation and may reduce the probability of blood-clot
formation in your blood vessels!

________
Namaste!
Namaste is a Sanskrit greeting meaning:    
"I see the Divine in you
as a mirror of the Divine in myself."

We use this greeting in class
at the beginning and end.

It is included in a practice called the "Heart
Salutation."  Sit or stand across from your partner
or instructor. Bring your hands together in the
prayer position pointed towards the Earth. Inhale
as you raise your hands to your heart. With a soft
gaze and an open heart, look into each other's
eyes.  Bow as you exhale, looking into your
instructor's or partner's eyes and either say aloud
or silently....acknowledge the Divine in them as a
mirror of the Divine in yourself.  Inhale back to
your starting position. Exhale your hands back to
the Earth.

As you move through your day, look into people's
eyes and say, "Namaste", either aloud or silently.
See if you can experience the "Divine within them."
This practice can also be done with animals, trees,
rocks, mountains or anything else, as we are all
Divine Consciousness in form.
Notice how this practice makes you feel??? ....
connected, alive, silly,
alone or present?

Yoga as Medicine by Timothy McCall, M.D.

"I can always tell when it’s been a while since I’ve
taken a yoga class. I start to feel a little out of
touch with the student in me, which can soon lead
to feeling disconnected with the students in front
of me. At that point, there’s really no excuse good
enough, I need to get my butt to a yoga class –
someone else’s yoga class."
-----   Carol Oveross, RYT

Be the Student

“I like to remember that even as yoga teachers we
are forever students on this amazing path,” says
Aiyana Athenian, owner and teacher at Shiva
Shakti School of Yoga and Healing Arts, in Maine.
“I find it helpful to take classes … to be reminded
regularly what it is to be a student. I find it
keeps me more aware and compassionate.”
