Denise Doing Yoga With plantsFeatured Class: Chair Yoga

A gentle and invigorating class focusing on flexibility, mobility, breath work, and strength while exploring modified seated and standing asanas (postures). Ideal class for those with arthritis, limited movement (difficulty moving up and down from the floor as in a traditional yoga class), people recovering from an injury, and those seeking stretching and mindfulness practices that could be done at your office desk.
Rates are $60 for Club Members and $96 for Non-Members.  We welcome ‘drop-ins’ as space allows ($12/Member, $20/Non-Member).
