Optimal Living Adaptive Chair-Based Yoga

Adaptive yoga is about modifying traditional and therapeutic yoga poses to meet the needs of your body. This class is ideal for people with recent surgeries, stiffness, chronic pain, injuries, and other health conditions. Extra support is provided through the use of chairs, yoga props, and my assistance. The adaptive class also includes breathwork, mindfulness, and meditation.

I was so grateful to have our first Zoom yoga session a couple of weeks ago because I spent the first few minutes just crying – I didn’t realize how much stress I had been carrying! Just having you say it’s OK to stop, let it go to be in the moment and breathe was a pivotal thought; I realized it’s not what we are saying to (or hearing from) each other in our days, but need to.
