This gentle form of yoga is practiced sitting on a chair or using a chair for support during standing poses. Chair yoga is especially suitable for older adults, people with balance or coordination issues, and pre and post-natal students. Chair yoga helps increase flexibility, lung capacity, circulation and strength, improves balance, and relieves stress. The class incorporates breathing exercises, deep stretching, yoga postures, and final relaxation.
Effective, Friday, Aug 6th; we are reinstating that masks are to be worn at all times except while bathing or swimming.
The state of Illinois has issued a mask mandate for everyone (vaccinated and unvaccinated) that will begin on Monday, August 30th. That means staff and members will be required in all locations throughout the building except while swimming in the water. This includes locker rooms, pool deck, and while working out. We have signage to let members know about mask usage and staff will be required to enforce the mask mandate and we have always followed NCH and state guidelines, and we will continue to do so. We are having the safest environment to work and provide our members.
