A chair yoga program is among the several exercise classes offered this spring by the Jefferson Township Recreation Department. Chair yoga is designed for adults who want to move and strengthen their muscles, but are not mobile enough for a regular yoga class where many poses are done lying on a mat.

Learn modified yoga postures in very gentle class incorporating the same principles as full yoga while seated in a chair. Focus on breathing techniques and stress management tools such as meditation and deep relaxation.

The 10-week session will be held on Wednesdays from April 11 through June 13 from 6-7 p.m. at Camp Jefferson Community Lodge (81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong). The fee is $35 per person; the certified instructor is Linda Mangan.
