Take A Seat…with Chair Yoga

What started as a few stretches to relieve some tension around my shoulders and back after extended time sitting at my desk, inspired me further to experiment with my chair as a prop for my yoga practice. Check out this new video for a 43 minute chair yoga session! You might be surprised at how effective a simple chair can be as a tool for supporting deeper stretches, for promoting better posture, and for providing an accessible base on which to sit, lean, or balance.

I hope you will be inspired as well to come up with your own unique stretches and chair-supported yoga poses. Let your body guide you and have an open mind. At the very least, as you sit throughout the day, position yourself towards the edge of the chair with your feet flat on the floor and your hands gently in your lap; sit with a tall spine (more neutral and less slouchy to encourage good posture); close your eyes and take 10 full deep breaths. Try setting a timer to remind you to do this a few times a day!
