Yoga for Balance and Stability is designed for students who are recovering from injury, working with limited mobility or special conditions, or looking for more supported ways to build strength and improve balance. We use chairs and a variety of props so that all students can experience the stretching and strengthening benefits of yoga regardless of their current physical condition. While some students may transition to the floor for the last part of the practice and for relaxation, others may choose to continue practicing with the support of a chair. Students who need to stay seated for the duration of practice are welcome and encouraged to join!

Eileen Hemphill

Eileen practiced yoga for 16 years before completing the RYT-200 certification at Grace Studios in Silver Spring, MD, in 2022. She started teaching immediately and currently teaches Vinyasa Flow and Chair Yoga classes. Her commitment to inclusivity and strong desire to help others experience the life-enhancing benefits of consistent practice led her to complete an additional certification as an Accessible Yoga Instructor. As a teacher, Eileen believes yoga should be accessible for individuals of all ages and abilities. She has taught teens, adults, and seniors and enjoys sharing her knowledge and learning from her students. She finds that adaptations and using props can help some individuals explore a wider range of postures. Her classes offer all students a safe and supportive environment and pose sequences that flow with energy and grace, effort and ease. She is grateful to the gifted teachers whose guidance and mentoring led to teaching yoga with joy and compassion.
