Chair Yoga Class
Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism
801 Bering Drive
This class is FREE! I encourage you to make a donation to the temple as you are able.
Please call Justin Doitch at the Center at 713-782-4162 to sign up for this class.
This lively class is for active seniors who want to maintain and improve their strength, stability, range of motion, concentration and make new friends. This class is open and welcoming to people of all denominations. Class includes asanas or postures done while sitting in a chair, standing with the support of the chair or the wall, and on the floor. Breathing and a short meditation end each class. Sticky mats are available, but many people prefer to bring their own. If you are unable to get on the floor or have restrictions on your activities, I can adapt poses for you.

This moderately challenging class will introduce the basics of technique, alignment, sequencing and the use of props that characterize this form of yoga. Students at all levels will be supported and challenged to explore their abilities and learn by experience. Small classes ensure individual attention. We practice with sincerity in a congenial atmosphere.
All props are provided, but many prefer their own sticky mat.

PRIVATE CLASSES allow you to learn yoga as it was traditionally taught – one teacher, one student. During a private session, you are given direction and support toward a desired goal. Individual sessions are particularly valuable for certain medical conditions and/or acute or chronic physical injuries. They can provide a bridge to group classes.
Session prices are: Single class: $85. Packages of three or more classes paid and scheduled in advance: $75 per class. There is a travel charge if I come to your location based on distance of travel.
OTHER CLASSES THAT COULD BE DEVELOPED:
Slow & Easy Yoga
The Slow and Easy Yoga class is beneficial to a wide range of people including those who are de-conditioned, work in corporate settings or athletes who want to increase static strength, flexibility and range of motion . This class will be taught with lots of props and support. Students gain awareness of alignment in this class, and office workers relieve fatigue and stress. The skills learned in this class are very practical and portable making them ideal for travelers or for anyone to use throughout the day to maintain energy and focus. One version of this class is currently being taught to Seniors on Mondays, 10-11:15 am at the Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism as outlined above. You might be amazed how versatile yoga with a chair can be and how much 80 year old students can do.
Yoga for Breast Cancer Survivors
This class is similar to the Slow and Easy Yoga class with emphasis on enhancing range of motion in the arms, improving overall strength and stamina in a very gentle way. We will use the breath to release tension and focus the mind and meditation to quiet the mind. The exercises and the group support improve strength, range of motion, sense of well being and self-confidence. I’ve been certified in the YWCA Encore program and the American Cancer Society STRETCH program. Iyengar yoga has specific training for breast cancer patients as well that supports and enhances the other two modalities. I had breast cancer in 1989 and I have had personal experience with using yoga to improve a challenging situation.
