CHAIR YOGA with ROBIN WEBER
“Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. It is in the process of being recognized formally as a type of yoga distinct from other types, such as Iyengar Yoga or Ashtanga yoga.” Wikipedia
Contributing to the “To Our Health” theme of January’s WIN meeting we also welcomed Robin Weber. Robin is a yoga instructor who was familiar to many of our members, who already participate in her classes. Her easy to follow instructions were not only educational, but entertaining. She explained the benefits of deep breathing & exercise, to keep your body flexible as you age, and to relieve stress.
Robin’s family owns & operates The Common Roots Brewing Company, in South Glens Falls, NY. On the first Monday of each month the company sponsors “Yoga & Beer”. Robin teaches a yoga class right at the brewery, the proceeds of which are donated to a local charity. There is no charge for the events, but a $10 donation is suggested. On Sunday, March 6th WIN will be the lucky recipient. We hope to see many of our members there.
