"Richard" Artist, Alice Neal (1969)
Richard is practicing Eka Pada Rajakapotasana or one legged pigeon pose in a chair. Seated pigeon is a great pose for those with tight hips and can be practiced anywhere including your office chair. If you really wanted to, you could practice a whole yoga sequence in your chair while at work.
Chair yoga can be done with any ole yoga pose. It's a great way to adapt, modify or get a feel for a new pose. If you have an injury, or any kind of chronic condition, you can still reap the benefits of yoga by practicing in a chair.
Chair yoga is a wonderful place to start your practice if you lead a busy lifestyle, you want to start slow or are unable to practice standing or on the floor. There is always a way for us to practice. Important thing is to give it a try. You might like it:)
