Virtual Yoga Series

Our upcoming Chair Yoga series, led by Gena Foreman, is an adapted form of yoga that makes it accessible to everyone. Gena has over 25 years experience as a student, teacher and mentor. Her classes are a balanced fusion of informed, conscious yoga postures with attention to breath (pranayama) and healthy energetic alignment. Her instructions are clear and concise, offering modifications to address injuries or the special needs of her students. Throughout her classes students learn yoga is not a “one size fits all practice” and that there is more than one way to be in a pose.

The practice is done entirely in a seated position; no yoga mat is needed. It is best to have a comfortable, sturdy chair with no arms to give the body more range of motion, but one with arms will work, if balance is a concern. Please wear comfortable clothing.
