programs chair yoga
Therapeutic Chair Yoga (TCY) offers an alternative yoga practice for anyone who finds floor yoga poses too demanding, including those suffering from mobility issues and medical conditions such as osteoarthritis, joint replacements, spinal stenosis, herniated disks, degenerative disk disease, SI joint derangement, piriformis syndrome, and sciatica.
Originally designed by Terry for senior citizens, the positive results of this program became the topic of her article, Senior Yoga: In and Out Of Chairs that appeared, in the medical journal, Topics on Geriatric Rehabilitation in 2012. It also became the basis of the popular spinal care program at Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in NYC, and the subject of a workbook by Terry Roth Schaff, Yoga for a Healthy Spine.
Terry teaches Therapeutic Chair Yoga workshops at Kripalu and the Omega Institute. Please let Terry know if are interested in starting up a Chair Yoga Program or attending a Chair Yoga Workshop.
