Manoranjan Chand designed chair yoga classes for people who work in offices or people with stiff bodies. It is highly recommended for back, hips and spine problems. It is hard for these people to attend an asana class.
Starting yoga lessons on the mat might make them feel down if they are the body is not ready for the practice. With chair yoga, you will learn how to bring flexibility on hips, spine and heart opening regions. The final aime being to increase the breathing.
All you need is a chair ! Pranayama, mudra and asana are performed just by sitting on a chair. The practice can be held 15 to 20 minutes ideally, but can also last 5minutes everyday in the office. This special practice will prepare you students to move later on to the asana practice on mat yoga.
It help with sleeping problems, and specially breathing. Chair yoga synchronizes the breathing with movement. And understanding the breath helps to understand the present moments.
