"Chair Yoga" is a gentle practice open to all. It is a particularly good class for people with physical challenges, limited mobility, seniors, pregnant women and those recovering from an injury. As the name implies, students will practice primarily sitting in a chair with options to stand. Since our society sits so often, "Chair Yoga: is a great way to learn postures to do from a desk, car, or any other time you're sitting. "Chair Yoga" is incredibly relaxing in part because of the heavy emphasis on breathing techniques and relaxation. Students work in and out of postures to increase strength and flexibility while allowing ample time to rest and integrate. These weekly classes begin October 12 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and run weekly through December 14.
"Music, Movement and Yoga" and "Chair Yoga" are facilitated by Julie Lain Trilling, RYT, a familiar face in Sussex County. Julie is a Registered Yoga Teacher and Certified Childlight Yoga Instructor, studying and practicing yoga since 2000. She has completed the 200-hour HA-THA Yoga Method teacher training with Delia Quigley and Denise Kay, and then became certified in "Chair Yoga." Julie recently attended Nationally acclaimed Childlight Yoga trainings on Yoga and Mindfulness for Children, Advanced Teaching Concepts for Yoga and Mindfulness for Children and Yoga and mindfulness in Schools. Julie initiated yoga and mindfulness programs at local day care centers and preschools and volunteers at Project Self-Sufficiency's Little Sprouts Early Learning Center teaching Yoga and Mindfulness classes.
