Yoga & Pilates in a Chair is a course that incorporates the strengthening moves of pilates with the breath and gentle movement aspects of yoga. It can all be done within the comfort and safety of your chair! This course is broken down into 7 short videos that can be done individually or together to make up a complete practice. All you need is a sturdy chair without armrests, a cushion, a strap or theraband, and a block!
In our first video, Rane will show you how to get set up in your sitting mountain before moving onto some self-massage and a gentle breath based practice.
Breath & Spine
In this short sequence, Rane takes you through gentle breath and movement, then continues on with the 8 movements of the spine.
We pick things up a little as Rane leads you through a strengthening warrior sequence before finishing off with some balancing work in tree pose!
Salute to the Sun
We'll keep things moving as Rane guides you through a seated sun salutation.

Jo leads you through some leg and glute strengthening pilates movements in and around the chair.
Jo continues the pilates-inspired practice, working with some stability moves for the shoulders and arms.
Rane finishes off with a guided relaxation that you can do while seated or lying down.
