Chair Yoga uses breath, mindfulness, and therapeutic movement in a way that is accessible and fulfilling to all bodies and all ranges of movement. Chair Yoga can be done seated in the chair or standing using the chair as support when needed. In Chair Yoga, we emphasize gentle movement, brain vitality, mobility, balance, and our connection to body and breath. We work to maintain and support a healthy range of motion and hold space for students to feel more empowered in their bodies and their health. This class is open to absolutely everyone. Students are always encouraged to listen to what their body needs. Some days you might want to challenge yourself and some days sitting and breathing with us will be enough.
Stephanie Rose teaches this class with a lot of kindness, compassion and joy. She believes everyone can benefit from Chair Yoga and ensures that all students feel supported, safe and empowered to listen to their body. She has used Chair Yoga to regain her own mobility and relieve chronic pain after an injury. She knows how beneficial Chair Yoga is and through her injury, experienced what it’s like to live with chronic pain, limited mobility, and fatigue for years. She is so grateful to have the privilege of sharing these teachings and always looks forward to welcoming both new and familiar faces!
Stephanie received her 50-hour Chair Yoga certification with Annette Wertman. She studied Hatha, Yin and therapeutic yoga with her teacher Joy Morrell. She studied embodied vinyasa with Troy Hadeed. She studied meditation and yoga philosophy with her teacher, Sally Kempton. And received her prenatal/postnatal yoga certificate with Lori Lucas.
Our Chair community at Harmony is warm and inviting! It has been growing for many years under the loving guidance of Jane Waterman. It has been through Jane’s dedication and knowledge that this community was able to thrive! Our classes come with a good dose of laughter and friendly post-class chit-chat! We hope you’ll leave feeling rejuvenated, clear and joyful.
