Chair yoga demonstration at Prescott Valley library July 7
The Prescott Valley Public Library will be hosting Sally Underwood as she demonstrates chair yoga, and invites you to participate by trying the moves and poses with her from 10 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 7.
Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. Chair yoga is usually taught as a way to achieve physical and mental fitness, not as a way of life, as are most other yoga classes in the Western world. Chair yoga has helped people with the symptoms of many health issues including hypertension (high blood pressure), anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, vertigo (medical), multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, osteopenia, carpal tunnel syndrome, clinical depression and chronic pain.
Chair Yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga available. Complicated maneuvers and complex movements are not present in a chair yoga class. Chair Yoga classes are often seen in senior centers, people with assisted living lifestyles, nursing homes, adult day care centers, and physical rehabilitation units. Clients can learn many kinds of yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation and ways of relaxation, with the aid of a chair.
Sally is a Prescott native who has taught in the fitness industry for over 30 years. She is a certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and a yoga teacher at the Prescott YMCA. She also spends her time as a mountain biker, backpacker, gardener, traveler and life learner.
