A typical yoga class begins with breathing exercises, followed by a series of poses and ends with a guided relaxation. Many people find that doing yoga improves energy level, mood, and general health. Stress is relieved while strength, flexibility, concentration, and balance improve. In Chair Yoga, all seated poses are done in a chair instead of on the floor. The chair also helps with balance in standing poses. Even people with mobility limitations can practice and benefit from Chair Yoga.
Ellie Beeler has enjoyed doing yoga for many years. After retiring from SUNY Canton in 2007, she began teaching yoga as a way of sharing its benefits with others. She currently teaches both general yoga classes and modified classes for seniors and disabled people at the Canton Yoga Loft and at other locations.
