NOTE: See the "About Barbara" page to read about the current fascia/ connective tissue training I am taking to learn yogic approaches to help rehydrate and manipulate the fascia to bring greater flexibility, improve posture, and help ease chronic pain.
Wishing for a more slow-paced yet effective class, regardless of age, weight, experience, or general stiffness? Come try it in this fun, non-judgmental environment for seniors or anyone else. Weekly yoga stretching and strengthening can help bring ease, balance, and stamina to our body, improve our posture, reduce tension, and promote better sleep, and you are welcome to do the class sitting on a chair.
Come create better flexibility, alignment, circulation, strength, and balance for yourself. Yoga for Seniors; Yoga for Beginners; Yoga for everyone!
Barbara has taught yoga for 25 years and has a certificate in Silver Age Yoga, which is yoga modified for senior yoga classes.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THESE ONLINE CLASSES
"I need the anti-anxiety, the breathing for calm, the grounding the class provides for me. Gentle yoga, because it is so deliberate, always appealed to me and now in a world that has been turned on its axis, it is essential."
"Not only am I getting quality teaching, but it's a time when I can feel connected with others. Feeling gratitude."
"I took a couple of your toe, foot, and ankle strengthening classes last week and, amazingly, they saved me! Walking at the farmers market today my foot caught on a cobblestone and I started to fall forward, but I was able to push down on my toes and feet, and I did not fall!"
Chair Yoga is our most gentle class and yet good and effective yoga. Come get your joints, muscles and circulation moving! Lots of stretches, twists, arching, forward and side-bending. Plus gentle strengthening in the core and legs and posture work every week. Much of the class is done sitting on a chair but we do stand and work on our balance while holding onto the chair. (Your choice to stand or continue sitting). Please use a sturdy chair.
WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THESE ONLINE CLASSES
"I just took your Chair Yoga class and loved it! It is so deeply deeply relaxing and makes me feel so well and so alive. It's a miracle! It's amazing how much you can do with a chair!!"
"Yesterday's gentle yoga class was spectacular for my legs...Whatever we did strengthened my quads and relaxed my calf muscles so that my legs were straight and felt strong and walking was wonderful. No pain in the knees. "
"I already feel SO much better than I did upon waking up today - I had lots of anxiety and chest clenching. Those chest openers are critical for me right now, thank you for incorporating them! "
"Centering. Calming. Perfect. I appreciated every moment. "
