Yoga Chair 60 Minute Practice with Lauren Eirk is a Therapeutic Practice designed around the use of a chair. Chairs can make poses feel more supported and assist with balance. Lauren will show how to flow from one pose to another using the chair to make transitions easier and add specific resistances to the poses. Chairs can add variety to our practice and help us to look at new aspects of Yoga poses. This video is designed for anyone at any level of experience.
