Many of us are look for a way to stay fit and to also calm our nerves, so why not combine the two? Today, Fred Loeffler, Physical Therapist with IHTC and Kimber Blackwell, Physician Assistant with IHTC showed us a relaxing workout anyone can do. It’s called chair yoga.

Many of us are spending more time in front of computers, sitting down or on the couch and during these challenging times, so Loeffler wants to help teach us the benefits of movement for our minds and bodies.
