When a Chair is Not a Chair

Chair Yoga_blog imageIf you are someone who would love to try yoga — or who has done yoga in the past but now have issues with your knees, wrists, hips or weight, FUMCFW’s new Modified Yoga class may be just what you’re looking for.

Formerly known as Chair Yoga, this class we’re now calling Modified Yoga is so much more than the retirement center yoga-in-a-chair picture that this misnomer tends to conjure.

Devoted participants in this growing Fit First yoga class will be quick to tell you about all the important distinctions that make this regular Hatha yoga class friendlier on the joints and great for anyone with injuries or other challenges that make regular mat yoga too difficult.

Using props, blocks, and, yes, sometimes a chair for support, this class offers a great off-the-floor workout that leaves its participants feeling good and usually amazed at the quality and intensity of this workout.

Join us in the Garden on Sunday, September 10 between services to learn more about this and other offerings of our Fit First health and fitness ministry. And, the first 100 people to sign up for Fit First email alerts will get a special gift!
