Yoga for Heart Health
This specialized class focuses on the particular needs of heart patients. Yoga for Heart Health classes (also called Cardiac Yoga®)—promote a heart-healthy lifestyle through the practice of gentle yoga exercises, deep relaxation, stretching, breathing, and healing imagery. This six-to-eight week program is tailored for people who are at-risk for cardiac problems, are living with a cardiac condition, or recovering from cardiac disease or surgery. Students have the option to remain seated for the entire class, or stand and come down to the ground as they are able. Yoga for Heart Health can be incorporated as part of a Stage 2 or Stage 3 cardiac rehabilitation program. All Yoga for Heart Health classes are taught by Lori Wieder, Certified Cardiac Yoga® Teacher and IAYT-Certified Yoga Therapist.
