Cheshire Residents Participate In Innovative Yoga Program!
Wednesday afternoon is Yoga Impact time at Cheshire Home, and resident Fritz Exume says it best: "Yoga helps me feel good."
Each week Therapeutic Instructor Nancy Candea guides residents through one hour of breathing exercises and upper body yoga postures. Sessions incorporate therapeutic yoga modalities for people living with disabilities, in order to promote overall well-being and quality of life. Residents agree that yoga offers another dimension to the work they do in physical therapy, and provides a mental balance as well. They perform their movements in a seated position, under the direction of Nancy and her assistant Ros Gourvitz.
The sessions held at our home are part of the outreach non-profit program Nancy founded in 2008, and she graciously volunteers her time to our residents. In addition to teaching classes, Nancy also provides instructor training here in the Morris County area, this summer she will be traveling to Greece to expand her program.
