We invite you to join us online via Zoom for a chair yoga session led by Liz. This 90 minute chair yoga session will include pranayama, yoga asana, and meditation. The focus will be on balance in the breath, stability and flexibility in movement, and relaxation to bring it all together and enjoy the benefits of the practice.

Please have a sturdy chair with a back, preferably without arms, for the practice. It may be helpful to have blocks and/or cushions to use as props, and a blanket or warm clothing for the meditation.
