Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ offers yoga classes three days each week.

Held in Fellowship Hall, Moon Prices hosts “Chair Yoga with Moon” on Mondays at 11:30 a.m. and Wednesdays at noon, while Grethe Christensen hosts “Gentle Yoga” on Thursdays at 9 a.m. The classes provide a supportive environment, whether it is someone’s first time or they are experienced in yoga.

Christensen trained with Swami Rama at the Himalayan Institute.

“Spiritual, physical, mental,” she said of the health benefits. “Take one of these away and you limp.”

Prices is certified in chair yoga for seniors, which can help to “renew, restore and relax.”

Both encourage their students not to push themselves beyond what their body allows. Their goal is to help them recover and retain movement, whatever physical limitations they face, they explained.

The cost is $5 per session, and there is no signup.

For more information, call 239-472-0497 or stop by the church office between Monday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ is at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.
