Virtual Chair Yoga
Sep 30 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Chair Yoga

Virtual Yoga Hosted by the West Tisbury Library

Wednesdays 8 am

Chair yoga is a supported style of yoga that is accessible to all levels and ages. In this class, practitioners will be guided through seated and moving meditations utilizing the support and assistance of a chair. While some chair yoga classes are aimed at elderly practitioners or individuals recovering from injury, it can be a fun and relaxing way to practice for all populations. The chair can lend support for getting deeper into postures while maintaining the relaxation response throughout the class. In addition, meditation can be uncomfortable physically when practiced on a floor and in a cross legged or kneeling position. As such, seated meditation in a chair can be a great way to maintain comfort which will allow for more focus and a deeper meditation. All you need for this class is an armless chair and place to put it. We hope you can join us for this weekly virtual session offered by Jason Mazar-Kelly (yogijay) through the West Tisbury Library. Please email the library at least a day before class to sign up and get assistance with the online Zoom platform.

About the instructor:

Jason is a certified yoga instructor, mindfulness consultant, business consultant, private chef, and CPA. From meditation and breathwork to hot vinyasa and pranic flows, Jason likes to share a variety of tools and techniques with practitioners at all levels. At the age of 12, Jason was diagnosed with severe obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). For the majority of his teenage years he struggled with OCD until finding yoga and mindfulness therapy. The practices he shares are practices he has worked with since 2011. Since 2014, he has shared these practices with communities around New England. His practices have been discovered through personal inquiry as well as through training, research, and mentorships. He will not only challenge you physically but will also challenge you to go deeper, to step into rigorous personal inquiry, and to engage with sensation. Discover the sweetness that comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone and into being fully alive.
