Yoga & Connection (Online)
May 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating indefinitely
Drop-ins are welcome!
This chair yoga class is truly “all levels” in that it provides options for people who have both different abilities AND who may want different results! People do yoga for many reasons, including strength-building, reducing stress, connecting to oneself and/or others, finding peace and personal growth. This class offers all of those things! Each class explores a monthly healing topic (like patience, kindness, or simplicity), as well as practicing various moving, breathing and relaxing in ways that meet you right where you are. This class is great for yoga beginners, as well as those with experience. All movement is done seated, but standing options are provided when requested. Wheelchairs and walkers welcome. Classes are taught by video and/or audio over the Zoom format.
Instructor E.B. Ferdig has been teaching therapeutic yoga for 18 years. She is enthusiastic about chair yoga because it opens up new ways for people to relate to their bodies (and minds!) with support that can be achieved in no other way. She loves to partner with her students to find new ways to do movement that suits them best. She appreciates teaching online because it helps more people access yoga. She loves all kinds of movement and also teaches dance. She has owned a yoga studio called Unfold in Southeast Portland for over seven years.
