If you thought you couldn't do yoga in a chair, think again! Chair yoga is perfect for seniors, office workers and anyone who finds it difficult to sit on the floor or stand. In this 30-minute class, David shows you how you can stretch the upper body in a thorough, effective way.

Really enjoyed this class. I need to strengthen my back and I can't lay down on the floor, so this was perfect for me. Excellent instructions. I will repeat this class on a regular basis.

David, this class was perfect as I am recovering from a fractured and sprained ankle. My upper body feels quite tense as I am on crutches and this class has really helped me to relax and release around my neck, arms and shoulders. I'll be doing it every day for the next few weeks!

These are amazing stretches for the upper body. It is cool to be able to stretch so many little areas of the shoulders, upper back, and neck. This practice covers all of the intricate areas that definitely make a difference in how one feels. So many places where stress can be stored. Great video!! Thank you David

Thank you so much for doing a

Thank you so much for doing a video for those of us with mobility issues! For the first time, I have hope that I will become flexible again and be able to do more and more as I utilize your instruction.

Wonderful class, thank you David. My first attempt at Yoga post ankle fusion surgery 4 days ago. The stretch and opening was much needed.

Hi David, firstly thank you for making yoga so accessable to so many! I've been using your site for a good couple of years. I'm currently in my third trimester of pregnancy and feel rather heavy, while not labelled at 'prenatel yoga' this gentle chair yoga is perfect for bringing space into my chest & shoulders, allowing for me to breath easier and is also releasing tension and fluid in my hands as I'm suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome due to fluid retention that pregnancy sometimes brings. I've needed to make no modifications, it's simply perfect and bringing me great releif at this late stage of pregnancy (along with many of the specific 'prenatal yoga' classes available here).
Universal amounts of gratitude for your work.

Thanks David!
