“I am a 74 year old woman with osteoporosis who has been taking chair yoga for over a year now. Even as a kid I could never touch my toes with my knees straight. I can now! Yoga has given me strength, flexibility, greatly improved balance ( so important for seniors ) a group of new yoga friends, confidence, and a lot of energy! Christine, our instructor, is wonderful! She has a great sense of humor, she is encouraging, and fun. The time goes by so quickly.”
