“As a dance and yoga teacher who teaches students of all ages and abilities, this book is an incredible guide! It has helped me rethink how to differentiate poses and meet the needs of all my students. Christina's insights and knowledge on yoga are a wonderful resource for teachers!” —Blair Brown, dance and yoga teacher
“As a paraplegic/double amputee and wheelchair user, I only recently began exploring a different world of yoga and a true community of people who believe that yoga should be accessible to all. Chair Yoga is the perfect complement to my own yoga practice and a terrific, non-judgmental guide to my learning the basics and understanding yoga right from, in my case, a wheelchair.” —Richard P., professional writer
“Christina D’Arrigo has put together Chair Yoga to help everyone find a way to get the benefits of exercise without putting themselves in danger. Each pose has detailed instructions and illustrations, and many poses also come with variations so you can make the sequence easier at first and more difficult as you grow in strength and confidence. There are also informative articles about yoga and healing, face yoga, and breathwork—bonus ways to heal your mind and body and help with stress, headaches, and eye strain. If you or someone you know is healing from an injury, has issues with mobility, is pregnant, takes long flights, or sits in a chair for long hours, then Chair Yoga can help you build strength and flexibility, calm your mind when you’re stressed or anxious, and move into healing and mobility.” —Jill Nicely
