Chair Yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga available.  Students perform postures with the aid of a chair, experiencing all the benefits of yoga while alleviating the need for getting up and down from the floor. This class is appropriate for all levels of students–from beginner to advanced–looking for a slow, steady, and purposeful practice. Variations and modifications to all poses will be offered, as well as attention paid to safe body alignment and use of gear / props. Breath work, meditation, gratitude, guided rest, and mindful movement are all offered as part of this practice.  



$12 per session, for single session     


$40 for a four-class pass


(Class passes may be used for any four yoga classes hosted by the Library Arts Center this calendar year).  



We recommend that participants bring their own yoga mats, and any other needed equipment.

All participants will be asked to sign a release of liability at least once annually to be able to participate in yoga at the Library Arts Center.
