Have you always wanted to try yoga but are afraid it is too strenuous for your body? Chair Yoga is a great place to start as it is one of the gentlest and most stable forms of yoga.
You will use a chair to sit or stand as Nancy gently and slowly moves you from one yoga pose to another. This class uses regular and adapted yoga poses to help you build better balance, body awareness, strength and flexibility. Chair Yoga can also help you reduce stress and calm your mind. This is a wonderful class if you are new to yoga, are balance challenged or need some additional support or stability.
Wheelchair students can also participate and benefit from this yoga practice.
Classes are held on Tuesdays from 2:00-3:00 pm beginning March 17, 2020.
Yoga for Healthy Bones: Beginners
This class is especially well suited for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia, low bone density, balance, posture and flexibility issues or just someone looking for an accessible, gentle yoga class. It's been developed using Meeks Yoga Prep™ along a continuum from least to most spinal compression.
Each adapted yoga session includes hip openers (the Meeks Method way), core strengtheners, active spinal rotation and balance movements as well as breath and deep relaxation activities.
Classes are held on Tuesdays from 3:30-4:45 pm beginning March 17, 2020.
This summer, join us for WATER YOGA in the Community Center Pool! No yoga experience is required.
Like most forms of water exercise, water yoga is very low-impact and gentle on the body, making it a great alternative to other types of exercise that put more stress on the muscles and joints. The water supports you, which can be a huge relief for anyone recovering from joint pain or injury. And we will use pool noodles as part of our practice!
Classes are anticipated to begin Monday, June 22 from 10-10:45 am (contingent on weather and pool temperatures).
For Each Session:
- Arrive a few minutes before class begins
- Remove shoes and socks
- Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing
- Refrain from heavy eating two hours prior to the class starting time
- Turn your cell phone off
Class cancellation: In case of inclement weather, call 703-597-8981 or check YogzWorkz' Facebook page two hours before your class starting time.
