Chair yoga is a general term for practices that modify yoga poses so that they can be done while seated in a chair. These modifications make yoga accessible to people who cannot stand or lack the mobility to move easily from standing to seated to supine positions. Many of the basic body mechanics of the individual postures are retained, no matter the stance of the practitioner. While seated on chairs, students can do versions of twists, hip stretches, forward bends, and mild backbends. In addition to a good stretch, chair yoga participants can also enjoy other health benefits of yoga, including improved muscle tone, better breathing habits, reduction of stress, better sleep, and a sense of well-being.

Who Can Do Chair Yoga?

Chair yoga classes are most widely available in senior centers and retirement homes, as senior citizens are its biggest target audience, but obese people and people with neurological diseases are also good candidates to give the chair method a try. Office workers can also take advantage of chair yoga’s adaptations to sneak in some stretches at work.
Those of you with disabilities, weight challenges, inflexibility, or who just cannot get on the floor for any reason (such as age or being in a crowded work environment) can benefit from a daily practice of yoga on a chair in the comfort of your home or office. The chair replaces the yoga mat and becomes an extension of your body allowing you to take full advantage of yoga’s amazing fitness and health potential. Even if you are in a wheelchair, you can receive the many benefits of chair yoga–the integration of body, mind, and spirit that keeps the yoga practitioner at the top of their game.

Silent Meditation with the SMA Meditation Community

Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays 10-11 am
All offerings are free, donations welcome.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more information or to be on the mailing list, contact:

About Billy White- billywhite66@gmail.com

With over 30 years as a professional musician, known as a guitarist/percussionist and world music performer, and 20 yrs. studying and practicing meditation, yoga, and sound healing, Billy is now working on a series of recordings that utilize various instruments, voice and sound design to increase relaxation and expand awareness and health.

Most recently, he has been exploring the realm of overtone singing, producing 2 or more notes from a single voice, expanding the harmonic spectrum and resonance in the human body, similar to Tuvan throat singers and Tibetan monks.

Billy has returned to San Miguel for a brief time, and will be leading sound meditations using Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, didjeridoo, frame drums, harmonium and other instruments, to create a deep and healing experience of sound and vibration.
