  • Chair yoga has quickly become a favourite among seniors as it is a low cost, high-benefit form of yoga and is low-impact on the joints.

  • One of my favorite quotes is Dance like there's nobody watching.  The dancers pose strengthens the legs, improves balance and core strength and stretches the shoulders.  It is great for opening the hip flexors, especially for those of us with tight hips
