CHAIR YOGA

OSH 216 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English
Locations: LFH 102

This unique program is offered in 1-hour segments of seated stretching and deep breathing to help maintain or build strength and flexibility while relieving the stress and tension associated with sitting for too long. 

You do not need to stand up to reap the benefits of yoga. Your body and your mind will thank you for learning about and practising chair yoga! With seated yoga, “the numerous benefits include increased strength and flexibility, improved circulation, and experience with breathing and relaxation techniques”, as noted by Dr. Andrew Weil, the today’s guru of healthy aging.

Ms. Jiovannina (Nina) Ramos was born in Caracas, Venezuela, where she received her background and practice as a teacher in yoga and meditation from La Gran Fraternidad Universal Fundación. She graduated with a bachelor degree in humanities and art degree from the Escuela de Artes Visuales Cristobal Rojas, also in Caracas. Nina lived in Caracas until 1995 when she moved to Miami. In Miami, Nina is a life coach, medical assistant and licensed massage therapist.
