Chair Yoga - Revised Schedule

Our Chair Yoga class led by Twisted Sister Yoga has quickly become so popular that we are now offering it each and every Thursday from 3:30 to 4:15. Come in and see what the excitement is about!  You’ll enjoy the stretching, relaxation, and the company.  This program is for ALL ages and genders - just bring yourself in comfortable clothing and a (suggested) donation of $10.

We look forward to seeing you here at the Roxbury Library!

Chair Yoga Coming to Roxbury Library!

Coming to the Roxbury Library February 8, 2024: Chair Yoga with Twisted Sister Yoga!
Beginning February 8, 2024 and continuing on the SECOND and FOURTH Thursdays of each month at 3:30, Chair Yoga will be offered for all ages. Each session will run approximately 45 minutes.
Yoga is for everybody and every body. We are aging and want to do it with grace and ease. Movement is essential. In this class we will work with a chair to learn basic movements to oil our joints, soften the fascia, improve our balance and strengthen our muscles. We will also learn some breathing practices and tools to quiet our mind. NO experience necessary: just wear comfy clothes and show up, have fun, and reap the benefits!
Suggested Donation per session: $10.00
For more information, contact the library at 607-326-7901.
