Chair yoga starting up again next week at St. John’s

Every Wednesday 11:15 a.m. to noon

Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga stretching that is practiced sitting on a chair or standing using a chair for support.

There are no complicated maneuvers, just simple movements. All you need to participate are comfortable clothes that allow you to breathe fully.  This is a great practice for everyone. Chair yoga improves flexibility. It may help with the symptoms of many health issues, including hypertension (high blood pressure), arthritis, vertigo, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and chronic pain

This chair yoga class is being offered at St. John the Divine in the church hall (579 5th Street, Courtenay) and is open to everyone.

The classes are drop-in for $5 each session and run every Wednesday 11:15 a.m. to 12 noon. For further information contact the church at 250-334-4331 or patmos@shaw.ca
