In 2013 Florida Atlantic University received funding from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine of the National Institutes of Health for a two-year study on Sit N Fit Chair Yoga. The study showed Sit N Fit Chair Yoga significantly reduced pain, increased pain interference, improved gait speed and improved quality of life.
Kristine’s yoga programs are designed to increase energy, flexibility and lung capacity; improve balance, concentration, and body awareness; lower blood pressure and reduce stress.
SIT N FIT CHAIR YOGA – Simple Chair Yoga – was created to give those who could not do standing exercise the full experience of a yoga class while sitting in a chair. A Florida Atlantic University (FAU) pilot study showed pain reduction, improved mobility, and improvement in sense of security and well-being. A second study with a larger group showed significant improvement in depression and life satisfaction. Data analyzed on adults with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s Disease showed significant improvement in balance, gait speed, walking ability as well as increased focus and concentration.
