Testimonials about Chair Yoga with Regina:
"I really wasn't sure what to expect but wanted a class that did not push me beyond my limits. The mindfulness and breathing practices were excellent and prepared us to be present with intention. Movements were varied and different from class to class. I liked closing with Kirtan Kriya as it brought more mindfulness towards the original intention. Regina's soft nature is so welcoming; she is willing to meet us where we are in our awareness and body." (JB, Victoria)
"Regina has lovely energy and is very compassionate. She has a sweet sense of humour and offered lots of variety and options including standing up. I certainly recommend her to others!" (SY, Victoria)
"Chair Yoga with Regina exceeded my expectations. The instructions accommodated each individual needs. I only wish we had this class twice a week. I first was a little sceptical about Kirtan Kriya, but find it a good relaxation tool and now look forward to this exercise and dot at home! I definitely recommend Regina's classes." (CM, Victoria)
"I could see this class really working towards building mindful movements in daily activity. Not just for aged folk!"
