A mellow, smooth practice focusing on the breath and the effect of the breath on the movement of the body, both physically and energetically. Chair Yoga will utilize the advantage of a chair in opening the body for a continuous flow of energy, or Qi. We use props to aid us in certain poses or as a tool to help us go deeper into poses. We can explore many poses like Warrior II and Tree pose all with the guidance of the chair! Of course if there is anything you do not feel comfortable doing you can always take a seat and focus on your breath. If you have yoga blocks at home, please bring them.
 
If you do not have yoga blocks or forget them I will have several pairs of extra blocks on hand. This Chair Yoga/Qi Gong fusion is an all level class, open to beginners as well as seasoned practitioners. This class is meant to be adjustable, relaxing, and fun so do not be afraid to explore something new, or maybe return to your practice.
 
Namaste,
Sabrina

Join Emily Reimann, M.S., L.Ac., this summer at the Oakland Public Library in New Jersey for an Introduction to Chinese Medicine series. During this series, you will learn about foundational theories such as Yin and Yang, the Vital Substances, and the Five Elements, as well as how these theories apply to medicine and everyday life. Other topics will include the basic anatomy and physiology of the internal organs according to Chinese Medicine, and how they correlate to the five Elements. Lastly, you will learn an overview of the primary pathways (meridians) and their circulation throughout the body.
 
Each class will include a brief meditation and simple movement practice that can easily be incorporated into your everyday life to promote well-being. Throughout this series, you will also learn a few acupressure points that you can use on yourself to boost energy and vitality, as well as to soothe anxiety when feeling stressed out. Classes will include a PowerPoint presentation with visuals to enhance understanding of concepts, and there will be time to ask questions as well. If you are curious about Chinese Medicine, this is a great place to start!
