Chair Yoga

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 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.
