Meditation meets each Tuesday at 10 AM
Susan’s Thursday’s Yoga Class is at Noon
John’s Chair Yoga continues Tuesday at Noon.
In Chair Yoga John has found a unique opportunity to focus on the spine. He calls it, “Rocking the Core.” This is not building the abdominal 6 pack. It is an opportunity to strengthen the muscles of each vertebrae for spinal support. The movements also increase spinal flexibility. John says, “develop the flexibility of the spine like a snake within the limitations of the human head, shoulder, ribs and hips.”
With John’s methods each vertebrae can be flexed which serves to maintain spine health, enhanced flexibility as it reduces any pain levels experienced. At the same time spinal strength is established and maintained. This serves to protect the spine even when injuries have resulted in physical limitations to the individual.
