Chair Yoga – Kundalini

CHAIR YOGA (KUNDALINI YOGA)

Tuesdays, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

August 6th – September 10th

Chair yoga exercises can focus on the heart and circulation, general mobility, coordination, enhancing lymphatic flow, mental focus, short term memory, immune function, balancing and more. You will also learn beneficial breathing techniques that are a key aspect of reaching optimum health. Enjoy all the benefits of chair Yoga in a safe and encouraging atmosphere while having so much fun! Chair yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga, mostly practiced either sitting in a chair, or standing, using the chair for support.  We practice different yoga postures, with simple breathing techniques that aid in relaxation.   Each session concludes with gentle relaxation/meditation to reduce stress.  Chair yoga may be the perfect choice for you if you:

  • Have difficulty getting down to or up from the floor
  • Suffer from high blood pressure, anxiety, arthritis, fatigue, osteoporosis, and chronic pain
  • Want to increase your flexibility, mobility, and move with greater ease and comfort

Wear loose comfortable clothing.

Would you like to learn to play the Piano?

Would you like to learn to play the piano? What about the guitar?  Another instrument perhaps?  Music is a fantastic way to get your brain to think and learn in different ways, especially as we grow older.  Members of the Islington Seniors’ Centre can take lessons at the Centre with a music instructor–we’ll supply the piano!  The music instructor will supply other instruments if there is a specific request for an instrument, other than a piano.

Individual lessons are going to start with 20 minutes at $15.00 each; group classes will start at $10 per person for 20 minutes.  Classes would begin in September so please register in the main office of the Centre.  Payment will be due upon your first lesson.  We would like to see the level of interest in these lessons before we settle on a particular day and time.  Options for lessons may be on weekday afternoons, as arranged with the instructor.

Membership required.
