Yoga

Yoga classes are offered at First Christian Church by a certified YogaFit instructor.  Two class styles are offered: mat yoga and chair yoga.

Mat yoga takes participants through moderately challenging poses that flow from one pose to another.  Focus is directed toward breathing and movement while moving slowly through poses to build strength, flexibility, balance, and focusing the mind.  This will also reduce the risk of injury by allowing one to be attentive to movement and bringing the body into greater alignment.  

Chair yoga is designed especially for seniors.  It reduces strain on joints while increasing stability and balance.  Participants become more aware of the balance and posture of their bodies.  They are able to strengthen abdominal and core muscles, improving blood flow and range of motion.

 There are four one-hour classes scheduled each week in Cornerstone Hall:

  • Mat Yoga meets on Monday and Wednesday from 9:00-10:00

  • Chair Yoga meets on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00-10:00

Dress comfortably, bring your mat, and join in a gentle yoga practice that can lead you to better spine health, and if done weekly and consistently, improve mobility, strength and balance.
