Chair Yoga Classes Offered at Visions HealthCare

Visions HealthCare now offers Chair Yoga classes for those that are hesitant to try yoga because of pain, inflammation, injury, inflexibility or other issues. Classes will run for four weeks, from 9 to 10 a.m., Tuesdays, beginning March 24, at Visions’ Dedham facility.

Each class includes breathwork, stretching, relaxation and meditation, as well as yoga poses adapted for the chair. The gentle class is designed to alleviate pain, improve range of motion and flexibility, increase strength, create balance, reduce stress and promote relaxation.

The class is taught by Certified Integrative Yoga Therapist Alaine Amaral, who says she is committed to “looking out for each patient” by recommending specific modifications for each individual in the midst of a supportive group class setting. Amaral, who has lived with fibromyalgia since 1998, uses yoga, meditation, diet and lifestyle awareness to manage her own symptoms. She is eager to assist those suffering from pain by providing an alternative approach.

Cost: $60. Location: Visions HealthCare, 910 Washington St., Dedham. For more information, call 781-431-1333 or visit
