Sit down and get moving! Many of us are spending more time in front a computer, causing aching necks and poor posture. This week we talked with certified yoga teacher Alicia Medd about the benefits of chair yoga for those of us stuck in front of a screen or who can’t get onto the floor easily. Alicia recently relocated to Vermont and is now offering her services in the Northeast Kingdom. She typically teaches a public chair yoga class twice per week, and offers private sessions for groups and individuals. Due to the pandemic, public classes are on a temporary hiatus.
Alicia completed her year long teacher training program and obtained teaching certification in Burbank, California in 2017. She has gone on to teach a variety of classes to students of all ages and backgrounds. Through both her training and teaching, Alicia has developed a deep understanding of “yoga for the individual,” meaning that each unique body needs a unique yoga practice. Over time Alicia has become skilled in curating practices that are appropriate for every student in attendance.
