Michelle takes you through an invigorating sequence of strengthening and stretching exercises for the hips, knees and ankles - all done in a chair! It's a great class for seniors or for anyone with limited mobility. Filmed in beautiful Victoria, you'll thoroughly enjoy being a part of this class!

This is a very good routine

This is a very good routine for tight hips. I felt better straight away but also, with time, I think the improvement will be even greater. Clear explanation and simple movements at a good pace.

Michelle tells us to breath in when the leg goes down and exhale as it comes up. Is she really huffing and puffing like you would need to do to keep up with her? Is the breath supposed to be so shallow that breathing that fast would coincide with the rhythm? gasp, gasp

Maybe, as a newbie, I have

Maybe, as a newbie, I have the wrong idea of yoga...I thought this class moved way too fast. I felt more like I was doing calisthenics than yoga. The movements and stretches, I'm sure, were effective, but I'm more used to deliberately moving into a stretch, holding, relaxing, breathing, ETC. I may try the class again, as I can't lay down on the floor, so the seated movements are good for me, but will do slower, more deliberate movements, maybe half-time. I do appreciate this site so much, and the class.

Hi! Question for you. I'm 17

Hi! Question for you. I'm 17 years old, and my mother is 63. I've been looking for some yoga we can do together because I have anxiety (it helps TREMENDOUSLY!) and her doctor is wanting to loose weight (she also has back pain that I KNOW yoga will help with). Would you recommend any senior videos that are a little more active, but not too much getting on the floor bending and such?

Good for an injured upper body!

I'm no senior (yet!), but I do have a dislocated shoulder and was getting frustrated I could not do any yoga. But this class was ideal to keep the lower body a little flexible whilst still protecting my poor shoulder in a sling. thanks Michelle, I'll definitely bookmark this one.

Hi jayjoshi. Thanks for letting us know. Our intention is to have Iyengar classes available sometime soon, but we don't presently have one in the works. I'll put a post up when we have one coming!
