Hi My Friend,
How is your body feeling today? Are you feeling stiff, tight, or tense? How is your mindset? Tired, stressed, or depressed? I’ve got just the thing to help you feel better fast – and you dont even have to get up from your seat.
When I’m feeling on edge, I like to sneak in a few Chair Yoga poses. Perfect for days when you don’t have a lot of time, Chair Yoga can help you stay strong, flexible, and calm. It’s also an incredible way to maintain your yoga practice when dealing with an injury or illness. Chair Yoga can help you stay fit no matter what life brings you next… and you don’t even have to stand up.
What Is Chair Yoga?
So what exactly IS Chair Yoga? 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 one of the gentlest forms of yoga available.
Who Can Do Chair Yoga?
Chair Yoga can be incredibly beneficial for people with mobility issues, including elderly people and those with disabilities. It’s also great for people wanting to sneak in a couple of stretches at work in the office. The best part about Chair Yoga is that it can be practiced anywhere. All you need is a chair!
What are the Benefits of Chair Yoga?
Yoga has been shown to improve overall health, prevent and (even in some cases) reverse disease when practiced regularly as a lifestyle. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that it can therefore lend its benefits to those with mobility issues. Here are some of them:
- Improved Strength. You can build strength and fitness from a regular Chair Yoga practice. Just try this video below and tell me how your upper body strength improves from our chair chaturanguas!
- Improved Flexibility. Chair yoga can help people with mobility issues improve their flexibility so that they can keep up with daily life activities.
- Improved proprioception. Chair yoga can improve proprioception, which is the skill of knowing where your body is in space, and coordinating your movements accurately. This is particularly important for elderly people and can prevent falls. For people with disabilities or conditions such as MS, it may mean having greater control over your body and its movements.
- Reduced stress and improved mental clarity. Chair yoga can lessen the impact of chronic illnesses and pain. It can also help people cope with feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression. Being calmer and more relaxed inevitably leads to a greater feeling of happiness and well-being.
- Improved stress and pain management. The practice of Chair Yoga includes breath work, which can help people not only with stress management but also with coping and managing pain. Through meditation and paying attention to your breath, you can help your body and mind to cope with the pain of an illness or condition you may suffer with.

Before starting any new physical activity, you should consult your healthcare provider. These poses are suitable for most people, including seniors, those living with chronic pain and those who use a wheelchair. But ALWAYS check with your doctor before starting this or any exercise routine. Listen to your body and move mindfully.
Get ready to stretch your muscles, calm your mind, and exhale the stress away. Press play.
