CHAIR YOGA FOR DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, AND STRESS
$15 per session, if paid weekly
$90 prepaid for 7 sessions
Recent research has shown the practice of yoga to be beneficial for depression, anxiety, and stress reduction, as well as for other mental health conditions. A weekly beginner’s chair yoga class focusing on breathing, asana practice, and relaxation to help alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress will be offered at Psychological Health of Roanoke. Chair yoga is designed for people who may have difficulty getting up and down off the mat but who are able to sit in a chair and stand behind a chair using the chair for support to practice yoga. After the second class, if you choose to continue, you will be obligated to attend and pay for the remaining classes. However, if you know you will miss a class because of vacation, you may make arrangements with the instructor prior to July 8th to miss a session without paying for the missed class.
