Chair Yoga After A TKR?

Hi everyone! First of all, let me start by simply extending my thanks and gratitude to all of you for visiting my site. It’s so nice to receive private messages and posted comments letting me know how useful this site is. That is always nice to hear and read! Now..on to the topic for this article…

I recently had the opportunity to attend a chair yoga class. After hearing and reading so much about this gentle form of exercise, I thought it would be interesting to experience it first hand. The results… what a wonderfully effective way to spend an hour. Here’s the scoop…

The class started with us setting up a firm chair that was placed on a mat. There was a strap, ball, and block nearby. We all introduced ourselves to each other before taking our places. The instructor personally greeted newcomers and returning students with a genuine friendliness and concern. Before we began exercising, she broke the ice by sharing a story about her dog and some missing chickens. It was quite entertaining and an excellent way to put a personal spin on things.

Our class took place in a large workout room, with a closed door. Our exercise started with deep breathing exercises that transported our mind and body into a state of calmness and readiness. There was gentle music playing in the background. It was very peaceful.

Every movement was explained and demonstrated before we attempted it. No movement was forced, accommodations could be made so no pain was experienced. We were told to not push beyond our comfort level. The importance of maintaining a silent, straight string from the top of the head to the bottom of the spine was discussed.

The other students were shoe-less, but since I need an almost 2” shoe-lift to balance myself, my shoes were on the entire class. There was no pressure for me to remove my shoes. I was very concerned about that when the class first started since I noticed everyone else removing their shoes. I felt out of place and uncomfortable. I thought maybe I could not participate. Nope, I was luckily wrong.

We stretched our obliques, shoulders, neck, abdomen, glutes (or butt as some know it…:) ), and entire legs. We did some stand-up balancing poses. While other students were replicating the instructor’s movement, I could gently alter the applicable exercise and still get a wonderful stretch.

I was pleasantly surprised how tired I was when class concluded. My entire body felt it had gotten a good workout. I will be returning….

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share….Thanks!
