Sit Fit Yoga is a holistic program of simple exercise, breathing, relaxation, and meditation techniques designed to help you regain and maintain health and well-being. This program is derived from classical techniques of Yoga, which date back more than 5,000 years ago of modified, simple and yoga postures (asanas).

Sit Fit Yoga believes that aging is an honorable process. In older age, we deserve to embrace this stage of life with acceptance and to feel good about how we can help ourselves and to have a positive outlook.

It is common for many people to have a negative outlook on aging and often depression occurs. Sit Fit Yoga teaches elder students how to live life to its fullest potential by learning to have a positive outlook with gratitude for all that we have lived through and seen throughout our lifetime.

Why Sit-Fit Yoga?
Sit Fit yoga is safe and convenient. It describes a gentle form of exercise that people can perform sitting in a chair. In Sit Fit yoga, people do not have to deal with getting down onto the floor and back up again. Chair yoga is becoming increasingly popular with senior citizens and is excellent for people with limited mobility.
