How to use the chair as a prop in our asana practice.
A chair (specifically designed for yoga practice) has been used as a yoga prop for many years, originally for yoga therapy poses for the elderly and people with certain ailments. During yoga classes for corporate executives who are also frequent travellers who wanted a short yoga sequence to practice at work, or the chair was also used for students who could not sit on the floor and to practice gentle stretches, breathing, and meditation techniques.
The chair is becoming increasingly popular as a yoga prop. However, it shouldn’t be used as an exclusive yoga practice sequence. Because the practitioner is limited in their ability to perform poses on their own, especially if they are able to do them without the chair’s assistance,therefore calling a yoga sequence “chair yoga” is not the proper understanding to yoga practice and its benefits.
