Chair Yoga: Level 1


This class is taught by:

Carson Ford

Carson serves many roles at Balance, including Studio Director and instructor. She began her teaching career as a teenager, coaching swimming and dance throughout high school and college. Carson developed a love for the body and how it works while earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Physiology from Midwestern State University. Carson began practicing yoga in 2015 and was instantly drawn to the mind-body connection reached through the practice. She felt that the body awareness she developed through dance and the mechanical understanding of the body she gained through her degree came together perfectly to give her a special connection to the practice.

Carson completed her 200RYT training with Toni Farris at Yoga Tree in Plano, Texas and is registered with the Yoga Alliance. Carson specializes in beginner and modified yoga and has a passion for teaching a safe and mindful practice. She developed the Foundations Yoga program for Balance and enjoys working with first-time yogis of all ages. In addition to Foundations, Carson enjoys teaching Flow Yoga and Restorative Yoga, as well as Barre and Core Pilates. She is currently working toward her 500RYT and plans on becoming a teacher trainer.

Heather Hope

Heather moved to Wichita Falls in 2009 from Layton, Utah and resides here with her daughter Aryah. She is working on her Bachelors of Science in Radiologic Technology at MSU. Heather is a Hatha Yoga Level 1 and 2, certified through SCW. She is excited to continue growing her practice and finds joy in the journey. Heather doesn’t believe in taking things too seriously and would like everyone to just own their inner bad ass. No ego, no judgment on the mat and a nice balance of both in life. Yoga gives her a strong foundation physically, a balanced perspective mentally and a way to heal emotionally. She looks forward to taking a trauma sensitive approach to yoga in the future.
Chair yoga offers the benefits of yoga all done from the comfort of a chair. This class will help to increase strength, flexibility, and respiration.  Other benefits of chair yoga include improving balance, posture, and range of motion, all without stressing or straining the joints.  Chair yoga will also develop core strength while relieving stress, tension and anxiety. Chair yoga is ideal for those who have limited mobility and flexibility, those recovering from injuries, seniors, and women during any trimester of pregnancy.
