Finding a balance while caregiving can be challenging. If we care for ourselves while supporting the person with dementia, we can find renewed sources of energy and hope. CaringKind invites you to join us as we explore self care on Wellness Wednesday's.

Chair Yoga and Meditation, in English 1:00pm

Presenter: Carol Mager

Chair yoga is a beneficial as mat yoga for those who find it challenging to get up from the floor. We will be doing movements that are chair based, as well as standing postures, with an emphasis on stress management. I encourage students to recognize when they are feeling stress in their bodies and give suggestions as to how to release stress. We will close with breathing and meditation.

Carol Mager has been practicing Yoga since 1970. Carol trained at the Integral Yoga Institute. She has been certified to teach Hatha Yoga with Jeff Migdow, MD, and to teach Chair Yoga and Stress Management at Integral Yoga Institute with Swarmi Rabinanda.
