Chair Yoga

August 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Yoga is both physical and mental originating in India dating back to 3300 – 1900 BCE. The physical practice of yoga consists of asanas, which means body postures. In modern yoga, props such as blocks and straps are widely used. In chair yoga, we are simply adding one more prop to help us. You will still get all the benefits of a traditional yoga classes including a good stretch and a general sense of well-being.

Samantha Benson is a 200 RYT (registered yoga teacher) having completed her training at Lotus Yoga in Montclair, NJ. She is currently pursuing her 500 hour teacher training certification at Yoga Stream in Princeton with Lara Heiman who has a physical therapy background. Samantha has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and owns a gym (Metabolic Functional Fitness) with her husband John of 15 years. In addition to teaching three classes a week at her and John’s gym, Samantha also teaches at a hot power yoga studio in Ewing called Empower.
