Senior and Chair Yoga at Tyler Senior Center

TYLER, February 18, 2014-- Seniors who want to improve their flexibility, balance and posture can benefit from special afternoon yoga classes designed just for them at the Tyler Senior Center.

Gentle Senior Yoga classes are offered twice weekly and include special modifications for exercising in a chair. Sessions are offered every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-4 p.m. for people ages 50 and better.

The instructor is Ryann Martin, who is certified and registered through Yoga Alliance.

“It’s very difficult to find a chair yoga class and we are one of the few places in East Texas to offer it,” said Kay Odom, Tyler Senior Center supervisor. “We have a very special teacher who really understands the special needs of seniors. Ryann encourages her students to work at their own pace and as an added benefit we are able to offer these classes in the afternoon, at a time that’s convenient for seniors.”

Classes cost $30 a month or $6 per session. Payments may be made in person at the Tyler Senior Center, 1915 Garden Valley Road. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and may bring a mat if they prefer to practice yoga on the floor.
