Chair Yoga: Not Just for Seniors

Posted By Carolyn on Feb 24, 2020

For the first time ever, according to Stats Canada, there are now more people age 65 and over than there are under age 15. It’s no wonder chair yoga has become one of the fastest growing yoga practices. 

You might also be surprised how many younger (athletic) people get interested in chair yoga when they can’t do postures in traditional ways. If you’ve ever had a skiing accident, intense sciatica, a sprained ankle, mild concussion, arthritis, or a vertigo flare, chair yoga is a safe way to stay active while recovering. 

In this 5 min video, London-legend Lotus Why shares a sampler of chair yoga movements that will get anyone moving—just try not to smile.

Lotus Why directs DevaTree’s 50-hour Yoga for Longevity course beginning April 24th in London, Ontario.

I’ve surprised myself at how much I love teaching chair yoga! And Carolyn, you’re right - I get some younger people along with the cute grannies and gramps coming out! ????
