Chair Yoga - Easy


This class is taught by:

Diana Robinson

Diana has has been integrating yoga into her life on a regular basis since 2008, but was first introduced to the practice as a child. She realized the healing benefits of a regular yoga practice when she faced life-changing health problems in 2011. Yoga, pranayama, and meditation and mindfulness practices became important modalities which she incorporated into her lifestyle to manage chronic pain and fatigue. This opened the door to another side to her work as a Holistic Occupational Therapist and she began to incorporate these modalities, adapted to each individual, into treatment sessions with patients.
 
Diana specializes in adapting yoga to fit any body. Her passions include showing students and private clients that anyone can benefit from a yoga practice and helping others to heal through a regular yoga practice. She has taught yoga to all levels, including students with spinal cord injuries, arthritis, lymphedema, strokes, and Parkinson’s to name a few.
 
Diana is a registered Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance, has a certification as a Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga Teacher, and she is a Reiki Master Teacher. Diana enjoys regular meditation, yoga, walking, knitting, journaling, and loves to work on her art work, which also includes Zentangling.

Carol Parr

Carol walked into Gold's Gym on a cold February morning in 2006 expecting to learn how to pump iron and walk on a treadmill, but instead, found yoga which has grown into a deep passion. On a cold February morning in 2014, at Kripalu School of Yoga in Lenox, Massachusetts, Carol graduated from her 200 hour yoga teacher training and is passionate about sharing her love for yoga as a way of life for people of all ages and physical abilities. One does not have to be a "pretzel person" to enjoy and gain the benefits of body, mind and spirit that yoga offers to anyone.

A former music teacher and currently pastor at St. John's Lutheran Church in Steelton, Carol graduated with a B.S. in Music Education from Taylor University, her Master of Divinity from Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, and the Shalem Institute of Spiritual Formation with a certification in Spiritual Direction. She is also certified in Quantum Touch energy healing, and in past-life regression by Dr. Brian Weiss.

Carol's three sons are all grown up now, and as retirement begins calling her name, she looks forward to many years of sharing her love for yoga with others, excited about the opportunity to do that at Yoga at Simply Well.
Perfect for beginners and also for those who may be unable to take part in even a gentle class due to mobility limitations. Diana uses teachings from Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga to adapt traditional yoga poses to a chair with emphasis on proper breathing and alignment. Build musculoskeletal fitness and flexibility with use of weights and gentle therapeutic movements.
