This yoga practice uses a chair to enable us to get a good seated and/or standing workout. This isn’t 'cop out' yoga. This is a real workout that happens to take place in or next to a chair; a tool to help us expand our practice in a new way.

Pamela Scarborough (Cystic Fibrosis physiotherapist and yoga teacher extraordinaire) joins Katie in this video to demonstrate the seated options, while Katie demonstrates the standing options.

We start with a seated breathing exercise to expand our airways, and enjoy some lateral stretches and forward bends to relieve the stresses on our spine that seating and hunched-over positions create. We then move to a vinyasa flow with seated or standing options, lunges and warriors using the chair for support. We finish the practice in a gentle supported inversion with our legs up the wall or on a chair.
