Yoga whether on a mat, outside, inside, on a plane, amongst puppies or on a chair improves flexibility, posture, endurance, concentration, strength, breath control, and mood. It can help ease tension, pain, stress, stiffness, and blood pressure.
Chair yoga, a mindful practice helps elevate self-esteem and prevent burnout from studying or in the workplace. Similar to a regular yoga practice, chair yoga enhances mindfulness and body awareness.
Classic yoga poses are practiced on the chair or with the support of the chair. When standing poses are included in a Chair yoga classes, the chair is used to help with and improve balance. Chair yoga also includes pranayama breathing techniques and meditation to promote focus, mental clarity, and relaxation.
Our Chair Yoga sessions are FREE for all UB Students, Faculty, Staff and Recreation Community Membership holders.
Classes will be held on select Thursdays throughout the semester.
