What is chair yoga?

You may be most familiar with yoga on “yoga mats”, but this is yoga and meditation that you can do sitting in a chair.  It is accessible for all ages, all physical abilities (and can accommodate disabilities and special needs very well) and you get all the benefits of yoga.  It’s not a workout as much as it is a carefully designed sequence that brings a beautiful mind-body connection, deepens the breath and brings a sense of well being and calm to the practitioner.  Who can’t use more of that?  It’s entirely non-competitive and I welcome everyone to give it a try.
