Learn More About Chair Yoga
This Chair Yoga removes the barriers for the blind to experience yoga. Chair yoga for the blind is perfect as an introduction to yoga without needing to get down to the floor. All the poses are either in or supported by the chair. Everything is well-described so you can relax and follow along. There are poses that strengthen, enhance balance, and stretch. There is a relaxation segment at the end.
