Chair Yoga with Kassandra Prus
Tuesdays 2:30-3:30 pm
PWYC suggested payment $12-$22
Please feel welcome to pay less if you need to.
This chair-based yoga class is an accessible way to move your body and reduce stress if you’re working with limited mobility from injury, illness, or age. We use many props as well as the wall during class to support this practice.
**The studio is on an elevated main floor with five steps and a ramp to the space. Please email if you require removable ramp access.**
We will practice chair and standing yoga postures to increase range of motion and circulation, learn functional strengthening exercises to help with daily activities outside the studio, do some self massage with therapy balls to release tension in key areas of the body, and practice breathing and meditation techniques to soothe the nervous system and reduce stress.
With a decade of yoga practice under her belt, Kassandra has been inspired and supported by her teachers and mentors (official and unofficial) Ante and Felicia Pavlovic, Tracey Soghrati, Joshua Lewis, and Jennifer Slade. She has a 300+ hour yoga teacher training from Yoga Therapy Toronto, a 50+ hour Yin Yoga training from Tracey Soghrati Yoga, Chair Yoga and Trauma Informed Yoga certifications, as well as over 10 years of arts-based facilitation and teaching experience working with ages four to adult, and 23 years of contemporary and folk dance experience.
In her teaching practice, Kassandra is committed to allowing her students the space and time to engage in their own process and self-activate their own healing by encouraging autonomy, insight, and self-acceptance. She is particularly interested in bringing the healing benefits of yoga and arts-based workshops and classes to special populations including seniors, folks with mobility issues, children and youth, and people dealing with trauma. Her hope is that people will leave her classes with tools to take into their daily lives, allowing yoga to slowly transform into a 24-hour a day practice.
