"It (the gong) is the only instrument the mind has no defense against. The sound waves bring the subconscious mind into a balanced and meditative state, an effortless meditation and relaxation facilitating the movement of prana throughout the body and psyche." ~Yogi Bhajan
Please dress comfortably - plenty of yoga mats, bolsters, pillows and props are provided at the studio for your use. Yummy, ionized filtered water is also available at the studio.
Whether you sit for hours on end or stand on your feet all day, Gentle Chi Flowing Chair Yoga will vitalize you with alignment-based movement and breathing you can do while seated or standing using a chair for support.
This class is beneficial for all ages and fitness levels and is particularly accessible for people who want the benefit of increased flexibility and joint mobility that comes from a yoga practice but are experiencing limited mobility due to injury, chronic illness or difficulty getting up/down from the floor.

"Catherine's weekly Chair Yoga class has done more for my body and mind than I could have ever imagined when I began four years ago! Over that time my body has become more fluid and energized and my mind notably calmer with her breathing techniques. I genuinely look forward to this class each week and appreciate the varied exercises. Sincerely, C.B." 2015

"I first saw Catherine for private sessions a number of years ago. I had been experiencing shoulder, arm, hand & hip pain from repetitive movement at work. As an Audiologist for over 30 years, I stand for long hours with my arms held up at ear level. I had been working with physical therapists and massage therapists to manage and eliminate the pain. Physical therapy and massage did significantly diminish the pain and discomfort, however, the relief was temporary. Catherine taught me how to stand and hold my arms up in postures that no longer caused discomfort. I have practiced yoga since the 90’s and she incorporated language and postures that were familiar to me, demonstrating how I could practice yoga at work utilizing postures and breath work that supported my ability to perform repetitive movements without creating discomfort and fatigue in my body. I continue to use her techniques and they continue to serve me well today. More recently I participated in Catherine’s Healthy Happy Hips & Pelvis class. Not only is Catherine an intuitive and generous teacher, she is a dedicated student who is a world traveler learning new techniques that she incorporates and shares with her students. When I create time to practice the techniques Catherine has shared, my body feels fabulous. There is a distinct difference between the days I practice and the days I don’t. I’m carving time out for practice more often as I love the way I walk, move & feel. I encourage you to do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one of Catherine’s many unique class offerings. Your body will thank you!" Dr. Jennifer Reynolds, Audiologist Woodbury, MN
