A light-hearted, gentle chair yoga class designed to align seated postures with breath.

No experience necessary for this class with Jackie Marks, Registered Yoga Teacher. The goal of this gentle, seated class is to reduce stress, cultivate mindfulness, increase body awareness, maintain mobility, and improve flexibility. Students are encouraged to look inward, be present, and "go with the flow."  Class sequences include centering, gentle stretching, and conclude with guided relaxation. Pose variations are shared and students are encourged to do what is best for their own bodies as yoga poses are definitely not, "one size fits all."  Let’s approach yoga, life, and our bodies with fun, compassion, and gratitude.    

This gentle chair class is designed for you if you:  

  • are looking for an introduction to yoga  
  • are recovering from injury or surgery and are looking for a re-entry point 
  • experience balance challenges while standing 
  • have a sedentary job and would like to learn how to incorporate yoga at your desk  
  • would benefit from learning stress-reduction techniques


What to bring:     

  • Water bottle, towel for under your feet (optional)
  • Sense of humor
  • Positive vibes!
