Did You Know?

Mary Cavanaugh, co-founder of YogaJP, is the creator of Chair Yoga - which really was an accident back in the 1970's. Mary was asked by Saddleback School District Night School to teach at a retirement home. Not knowing anything about retirees, she showed up ready to teach a regular class and found that everyone was using walkers, wheel chairs, cains etc. After the initial surprise of the class dynamics, she used her quick and enterprising mind by moving the folding chairs from the outer edges of the room into a big circle and low and behold, Chair Yoga was born!

Benefits of Chair Yoga

  • Increases circulation - Range of motion movements in the feet, legs, knees, hips, shoulders and elbows help the general well-being and function of the heart.
  • Aids heart and lung functions - The breathing techniques used in this approach are very effective for people with emphysema and asthma and aid in heart function.
  • Improves mental clarity - Following the directions and guidance of a yoga teacher challenges the brain and supports the mind/body connection for better mental processing.
  • Reduces aches and pains - Gentle movements lubricate and nourish the joints and connective tissue to ease the pain of arthritis and other neuromuscular conditions.
  • Helps reduce stress and anxiety - Combining slow, rhythmic breathing with gentle movements helps to calm the nervous system, slow the mind and allow time for well-deserved peace and relaxation.
