In-person chair yoga at Ridgefield Library
Ridgefield Library will begin in-person chair yoga classes with Liz Wendel, every second Wednesday, starting November 3rd, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the main program room.
This bimonthly The yoga class uses a chair (standing and sitting) as a supportive aid. Chair Yoga makes the practice of yoga accessible to all populations, all ages and all conditions.
How does a chair yoga class work?
Chair yoga classes with Liz give you all the benefits of any other yoga class: centering, yoga warm-ups, yoga movements and postures, concentration and breathing techniques, guided relaxation and meditation.
According to experts, yoga has the following benefits that promote healthy aging:
- Builds muscle strength to counter the natural atrophy of the skeleton that occurs with aging
- Improves flexibility to prevent loss of range of motion
- Improves dynamic and static balance, reducing your risk of falling
- Improves mental and physical agility so you can react faster – improving your mind-body and body-spirit connections – The Science of Yoga by Ann Swanson
