Adaptive Yoga with Chairs is its own special skill set. Whether you are stressed, injured, experience tension and pain, feel stuck at a computer or simply need more time for yourself, Adaptive Yoga may be exactly what your body is looking for. Postures or asanas are taught based upon principles that support and nurture all body types, whatever the age or physical condition. You do not need a pre-conceived level of flexibility or physical strength in order to participate. Adaptive Yoga with Chairs nourishes the body, mind and spirit!
*If your challenges are severe, please consult with your physician first before attending class.
“Adaptive Yoga with Chair is subtle. We grow with it as with more conventional yoga. Adaptive yoga can expand us in ways not yet experienced, freeing us from limiting assumptions. Yoga isn’t just on the mat, but everywhere and Adaptive is the perfect way to incorporate this principle into your everyday life.”
When Amy first tried a yoga class as a busy, young elementary school teacher many years ago, she decided it “wasn’t for her”. Ten years later and recovering from some serious health challenges, she decided to give “that yoga thing” another try. It was that second class after a decade hiatus that profoundly changed her life. She walked away standing taller, breathing better and knowing she had found something integral to her future. A born teacher, Amy couldn’t help sharing what she had experienced with others and began teaching yoga in 2003. Amy is honored and grateful to have completed her 200 hour teacher training with Shawn Shaw, Johnny Gillespie and Diana Hoscheit of Empowered Yoga . Always focusing on healing and prevention, Amy’s teaching has a strong foundation built upon core work, alignment-based poses and tension relieving breath work to restore and empower her students at their own pace. She believes in challenging herself and those around her, but is committed to listening to the body and making sure every class has a healthy dose of fun. Delight and connection are at the heart of every class.
Like many yogis, the first moment Jen Mast stepped onto a yoga mat, in 2005, changed her life. Very quickly, Jen fully immersed herself in her yoga practice, finding amazing benefits physically and mentally. Jen vowed she would pay forward this amazing gift. In 2008, she brought yoga into the public school setting where she worked as a high school counselor. She witnessed firsthand the benefits of adding yoga into the Health and Wellness curriculum as well as in her one on one counseling sessions with her students. Jen is a RYT 200 hr. and she also received her Lifeforce Yoga®certification this past summer at Kripalu, training under Amy Weintraub, Yoga For Depression. Jen has a fun and uplifting teaching style that will leave you refreshed and enlightened.
