I've been practicing the three Chair Yoga routines you've offered. They're wonderful and much needed when I want to feel centered, especially during a chaotic day. I do wish there were more routines available.
Thank you. I was reluctant to try this because I didn't want to feel like a piece of crap if I couldn't do it. But I could do most of it and I feel BETTER. I feel encouraged to try again tomorrow and keep working at increasing my mobility. I was a body builder that randomly had a virus attack and damage my heart.. I'm slowly crawling my way back towards health.. Thanks again.
Perfect. Seems just right for my body. I found years ago that breath work has helped chronic pain. Drs laughed at me. So glad that I found Dr. Furlan and to your channel. The chair yoga chi gong is a pleasure for this achy body.
Do you hold your breath for five counts or do you take 5 breaths
Thank you! Great short session which can be done throughout the day. I, also, do the 30 min. session.
Thank you for sharing. Great workout.

My favorite morning routine
Thanks much. Very helpful! Quick question: How often thoughout the day should I do chair yoga? Thanks again, Toney
