Yoga: Chair Yoga for Beginners

What you'll learn

Learn chair yoga with our relaxing Chair Yoga course in Sydney!

Seated yoga, particularly when using a chair, offers many benefits that make it accessible for individuals of all ages and physical abilities. By adapting traditional yoga poses to a seated position, practitioners can enjoy the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of yoga while receiving additional support and stability from the chair.

One of the primary benefits of seated yoga is its accessibility. Using a chair allows individuals with mobility issues, chronic pain, or limited flexibility to participate in yoga practice safely and comfortably. The chair provides support for the body, reducing the risk of strain or injury, while still allowing practitioners to experience the full range of motion and stretching benefits associated with yoga poses.
