The Zephyrhills Public Library, 5347 Eighth St., is hosting no-cost weekly basic level chair yoga classes, geared toward helping people of all ages improve their balance, flexibility and range of motion, by using a chair for support in a variety of seated and standing yoga poses. Certified Humana SilverSneakers yoga instructor Cara Godwin teaches her students many simple, modified yoga poses and relaxation exercises that, if practiced regularly, could lead to some very positive health benefits. Godwin said that some of the benefits include stress reduction, mental clarity, improvement in balance (which will help prevent falls), as well as improved flexibility and range of motion (to help with the task of getting up and out of chairs, and automobiles). Chair yoga meets every Wednesday at 1 p.m., and will run through mid-December. Classes are limited and weekly registration is required. For more information or to register, call the Zephyrhills Public Library at (813) 780-0064, or register online at PascoLibraries.org.
