Chair/Cardio Dance Yoga
Kristie's chair dance yoga class is fun, energetic, has good music and the movements can be done sitting or standing by everyone. Give it a try. You'll come back for more classes and will be telling your friends about it, too.

Kristie 's Chair Dance Yoga class is the perfect start for every day. The movements are smooth and easy to follow and the music choices are fun. And, the time goes by so quickly that I am always surprised when it's time to begin the cool down song. I'd recommend this class for everyone.

Chair Dance Yoga is a fun class. I like that I have the option to stand or sit. It’s a good way to start my day and Kristie is an excellent instructor. She changes up the songs and movements so that nothing gets repetitious. Keeps your mind and body working.

Chair Dance Yoga gets my day off to a good start. It feels good to stretch and move, and the music is fun. Kristie is an excellent teacher. She is easy to follow in the moves. I am hoping to improve my coordination in this class.

Chair Dance Yoga adds some fun to your day while getting the benefits of stretching and movement. You will enjoy doing yoga poses without even realizing you are working. Kristie is a great instructor who teaches the moves, making it easy to follow. This is a class you can do in your home, but feel like you are part of a group class.

What a great discovery! A fun and innovative way to exercise, with good music, helpful instruction and even assistance from cats!

I enjoy CDY so much that I am disappointed when the class ends. It feels more like fun than exercise but I know that I am getting both benefits. I highly recommend it.
As I look around and see my peers struggling physically, I'm very thankful to have taken Kristie's classes for many years. They have given me the ability to stay strong, flexible and to live an active life doing what I'm passionate about (dancing, gardening, and child care).
If we want to continue doing what we love to do and remain youthful, stretching our bodies and challenging our brains are imperative. Both of these things happen when we participate in the Chair Dance Yoga classes. The music is uplifting. The movements are so easy and joyful that we forget we're exercising. We are just having fun with our new friends.
I know as we age a bit, a lot of people want to exercise but are either bored with the same type of routines or simply think it is too hard to put in the effort. Chair Dance Yoga (CDY) gives the body a series of movements to get the body moving and stretching in a FUN way, while at the same time enjoying music we all know. (It really is so fun!)
CDY is not just for the “seasonal exerciser” to get a new spin on exercise; I see it as an excellent program for someone recovering from injury or just starting a program to ease into body movement. The benefits come as you control the effort your body will allow. You are doing many of the same movements as other programs, but it seems easier and quicker because it is so much FUN.
No matter your exercise level, I recommend that you try moving your body with Chair Dance Yoga!
