Come and join Russel McNeil for his Chair Yoga experience.

Russell McNeil, a senior fitness instructor for the City of Nanaimo’s parks, recreation, and culture department, said neglecting some muscle groups can lead to several health problems later in life that affect mobility and overall health. He designs his classes for people who experience difficulty doing floor exercises and the class will be done seated in a chair.
Yoga exercises have benefits on the body’s well-being and yoga positions stretch, relax, open the joints, release tensions, energize, and revitalize.

Jay Suttonbrown introduces monthly Kundalini Yoga and Meditation

Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as taught by Jay SuttonBrown is an evolution of Yogic practice. More than mind, body, and spirit …this unique system of Self-Guidance harnesses the power of emotional intelligence and the expansion of conscious awareness with the power of Yoga practice and technology. Learn the integration of movement, breath, and feeling so you can understand and skillfully operate, heal, and care for your TOTAL Self.

You will experience powerful movements that develop willpower, dissolve negative thought patterns, strengthen the body and clear the nervous system.

Happy Chair Yoga
Build physical vitality and increase consciousness. Get ready for some big sounds* as you deepen your connection between body and breath.

Open to all levels, no previous experience necessary.

* Our work is a blend of silence, soft and large sound. We use large audio speakers. Not recommended for students with auditory sensitivities.

Please bring a yoga mat, supports for a meditative seat, layers for comfort, and a sealable beverage container. You may find a journal useful following practice.
