Yes, YOU can do yoga!

Even if you have a bum knee. Even if you have a bad back. Even if you can’t get down on the floor. Chair Yoga is an adapted form of yoga that makes yoga accessible to everyone. Chair Yoga allows you to modify your yoga practice based on your health, your mobility, and your current ability level.

Chair Yoga offers a practice that includes seated poses on the chair and standing poses using the chair for balance and support.

Totally Chair Yoga offers a fully seated practice, and can be adapted as a wheelchair-based yoga practice.

Chair Yoga Mission and Vision

My mission and vision for Chair Yoga is to help everyone experience the benefits of gentle yoga practice – no equipment, special clothing, or yoga matts required. Whether you want the support of a chair in standing balance poses, or a completely seated Chair Yoga practice, Chair Yoga will work for you! Chair Yoga is Yoga for Everyone!

My Story

I have been teaching Chair Yoga since 2002, and completed my master’s and doctoral research investigating the benefits of Chair Yoga for psychological health in older adults. I am an exercise scientist, with a PhD in Sport and Exercise Psychology from Florida State University.

I’ve been practicing yoga since 1989 and teaching yoga, meditation, and fitness and wellness since 1996. As a researcher, a university faculty member, and a fitness instructor, my goal is to make fitness accessible – to make self-care enjoyable – and to help you live your best life.
