What is Chair Yoga?

Chair Yoga is a gentle and easy style of yoga that you can do sitting in a chair and using the chair for support. We will build on Strengthening, toning, stretching & balance as well bringing through a sense of calm and peace from the breathing techniques we will give you.

This online class is perfect for anyone that feels a little unsteady on their feet or has limited mobility. Having a steady base to work from means you will feel more secure and confident at all times.

Online chair yoga is perfect for:

  • Seniors
  • Anyone housebound
  • People with disabilities
  • Larger men and women
  • Anyone recovering from injury 
  • Anyone that may feel intimidated by the usual yoga class

In this online class, we will look at breathing techniques, guided meditations, grounding exercises, as well as movements to help stretch, strengthen and tone the body. These methods increase mobility and decrease the likelihood of falls.

One week we may focus on the upper body, and another on full-body, depending on the type of ability we have in the class.

If you’re ready to feel less stiffness, less pain and gain more energy and confidence try one of our classes now.

Benefits of Chair Yoga

Increases flexibility


This is not something that we have to lose as we grow older; with regular stretching you are able to keep the body supple, leading to better mobility and continue doing everyday tasks.

Improving muscle tone, strength & balance

Helping to keep you active for longer and reducing the risk of falls.

Number one way to stay fit and healthy?

Don’t fall!

Reduces stress & improves mental clarity

Using breathing techniques and focusing the mind on the present moment will help with pain management and help combat feelings of isolation or loneliness.

Creates a sense of empowerment

Not only does exercise release happy hormones it can also help you feel more in control. Yoga encourages us to look at what’s happening in our minds and body, so that we can be present no matter what is going on.
