Chair Exercises – Why is Ageless Grace performed in a chair?
One of the most common questions we’re asked is why Ageless Grace is performed in a chair. Shouldn’t exercise be performed standing up?
The Benefits of Chair Exercises
Challenge Your Brain – If someone asked you to play baseball, or do yoga, or perform a breast stroke while seated, chances are you would have to think about how to move your body to make this happen. When you have to figure out how to move your body in a new and different way you are engaging your brain.
Core Strength – It is often easy to ‘cheat’ when standing up and performing an exercise. You can avoid using the parts of your body that aren’t strong by using muscles that are strong – but when you sit in a chair you must use your core muscles. A stronger core makes for a stronger and happier body!
Almost anyone can exercise in a chair – It really levels the playing field. Twisted your ankle? Just had surgery? Do you have limited mobility? Does regular exercise (standing up) make you dizzy? Just sit down and perform the same motions in a chair!
