Event description

Description

Join us for a healing chair-based yoga session specifically designed for those experiencing a traumatic brain injury. The class is lead by Occupational Therapist, Wellness & Life Coach, and LoveYourBrain yoga certified instructor Sondra Funk.There will be 8 sessions offered every Tuesday through the months of September and October. There are 10 spots per class.


Chair-based Yoga for TBI survivors is most appropriate for people with difficulty transitioning between positions on the floor, experience more symptoms of dizziness and would benefit from a primarily upright posture throughout the entirety of class. This class would also be most appropriate for anyone who has a history of stroke and has residual hemiparesis or significant upper body weakness that would limit their ability to independently engage in a floor based yoga class. Note: There will be some standing and use of the chair for support with gentle stretching or balance poses as the series progresses.


Chair-based yoga (and yoga in general, really) includes breath work, which can help people not only with stress management but also for coping and managing pain. Through meditation and paying attention to your breath, you can help your body and mind to cope with the pain and symptoms you may experience from your TBI. Chair-based Yoga will help improve your strength, flexibility, proprioception (or awareness of your body in space), mental clarity and may help with stress reduction and pain management. You will leave this class feeling refreshed, restored and empowered.
