What is chair yoga

Chair yoga was designed for people who think that yoga is not made for them, or not accessible to them because of age or health conditions. It offers classic yoga postures, breathing and relaxation techniques that are safe, fun and good for you.

You can benefit from chair yoga at work, at home and even if you are in a wheelchair. The seated yoga positions are adapted to all needs.

The chair is used as an accessory to maintain a good alignment and to better understand the principals of yoga. Just like the dance bar for dancers, the chair is a tool that allows you to explore yoga postures – Asanas – safely while respecting your limits and learning to go beyond.

Whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years, our chair yoga classes are suitable for all levels and abilities. They are designed to help student’s progress from one lesson to the next.

Who is Josephine Piazza

I found my way to yoga while seeking relief after a severe car accident.  After experiencing positive changes in my body, I decided to share my knowledge with others. Since 2009 I have been teaching various styles of yoga.

I have studied with several renowned yoga schools throughout North America,  mainly in the tradition of Hatha Yoga. After discovering Carole Morency’s method during a teacher ‘s workshop, I joined the Yoga tout team in 2013 and now specialise in chair yoga since. 

Chair yoga allows me to adapt classical yoga poses, which help students practice to their abilities and find their personal yogic journey.

By teaching online classes I  reach a larger audience.

I offer conferences, group classes and workshops on a variety of topics designed to address all levels of experience. I also help caregivers feel better and find new energy. My classes are full of joy, energy and enthusiasm. I make sure to encourage students to grow, explore, find new tools… through movement, breath and awareness.
