Pure chair yoga classes, or a combination of on-your-seat, on-your-feet and on-the-mat are scheduled daily. They are designed to connect your mind, body, and spirit.

The Yoga Moves MS schedule has many different types of adaptive yoga, breathing, and meditation opportunities. You are encouraged to mix it up! Try a little of this (postures, dance, meditation) and a lot of that (breathing). Remember, safety is your TOP priority.
Classes may focus On Your Seat, On Your Feet, and On The Earth or yoga mat. Yoga Moves MS presents different options for Any and Every Body. You can make the class your own by choosing to do each pose On Your Seat, On Your Feet, and On The Earth. If you have not experienced chair yoga and are new to the practice, it is highly recommended that you attend the Live Foundations of Chair Yoga before taking other Adaptive Yoga Moves Any Body classes. Make sure you are on our student mail list to be notified of Live Foundations of Chair Yoga classes, special “pop up” classes and workshops.
The Class descriptions below suggest props such as blankets, straps, and blocks that you may place nearby. Most yoga moves require one chair and sometimes two. It is very helpful to have two chairs, especially when adapting poses that are traditionally on the earth. Yoga with two chairs is just like sitting on the floor without having to get up and down off the floor.
New Yogis/Foundations of Chair Yoga for Any Body
This is a “pop up” class designed for new yogis and those who want to learn more about breathing, basic yoga poses and alignment. If you’ve been hesitant to try a yoga class, this class is for you! We will introduce you to the foundations of Chair Yoga with demonstration and practice of basic yoga poses. Interaction is highly encouraged and time is allotted for conversation and questions. Let’s learn together how to breathe and move for improved strength and flexibility. Calm your nervous system and build your confidence. Props: Chair. Blankets, straps, or blocks are optional. You can watch the videos for similar type of information and a short practice in the welcome email that you received after completion of the waiver. Several samples of these classes are On Demand.

Yoga with Mindy has helped me in so many areas of my life. It has given me physical strength, confidence, peace and new friendships. I have confidence to attend class with others because we all have similar challenges, but each pose is adapted to an individual’s specific needs and ability. The students have become a wonderful group of new friends and I look forward to every week!
I feel like a new person after class – it is the highlight of my week! I tried yoga once before, but there was something missing, and now I know what that was. Our class is special because you always know what we need. I am so glad and grateful for Adaptive Yoga Moves Any Body classes.
I attended my first chair yoga class with Julie this morning. It was so good. I couldn’t do one of the poses so Julie showed me a different way. Julie and the attendees were so friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I also like how easy it is to attend. I was all set to attend a couple of other times but didn’t feel strong enough. You offer enough times to be able to attend when you can.
YogaMovesMS has changed my life profoundly! I have had Multiple Sclerosis for 32 years. I was heading for a wheelchair full time before Mindy’s Adaptive Yoga Classes. I found that slowly over time, my mobility improved. I was able to walk more upright with my walker and sit up straighter in my chair. My ability to transfer from a sitting position to a standing position was also easier. I have not had any falls or even lost my balance since starting yoga over a year ago! Lastly, before beginning yoga, I slept terribly. Now, I am so much less fatigued in the morning because I sleep soundly through the night.
