“I always feel good after (class), knowing that I have stretched and learned how to breath deeper.
It is my way of doing what I can to improve my health and be more mobile.”

Liz Franklin’s Yoga in Chairs® is designed to allow almost anyone to participate in a very gentle form of Yoga. It works the joints and muscles to increase flexibility, strength, balance, and circulation. It goes beyond typical exercises in that it encourages quiet reflection, proper breathing, and better posture.
The benefits of this program are remarkable. Students report reduced blood pressure, faster recovery from injury or surgery, better sleep, increased mobility, improved posture and some students have even gained height.
There are many ways you can experience the benefits of Liz Franklin’s Yoga in Chairs®. Liz offers classes in Denver, she has trained teachers all over the country as well as internationally OR you can get your own set of the DVD videos and practice chair yoga in your own home.
Dr. Jane Murray, M.D. has this to say about the program:
“Yoga in Chairs is a wonderful way for people with physical limitations to experience the relaxation and increased flexibility that yoga brings. Many health benefits are seen with regular yoga practice, and now everyone can participate, even if they cannot get onto a floor mat.”

TO Whom It May Concern:
The patient started a yoga class, at which point I noticed a rather significant difference in not only how she was feeling subjectively, but also her objective findings in regards to her muscle tone and her gait. I feel that the yoga class that she was attending has been very beneficial in the treatment of her condition and has afforded her a higher quality of life.
