Mat yoga is for clients who can get up and down without another person's assistance. Caregivers are welcome to attend. Attendees will be guided through stretches and circulatory warm-ups, a complete set of joint-mobilizations, and several strengthening exercises, supplemented with classical yoga asanas (positions), and finishing with a few minutes of progressive relaxation. Brief mindfulness practice and a final healing affirmation are offered.
