Namaskar Steph,

I agree with some of your points, but using a mat is a personal choice. Seniors have a right to make independent decisions. If it is an icy day, seniors have a choice to stay home or go outside. Everyone of every age takes a chance on a slippery day. Icy rain can cause anyone to fall.

With reference to the definition of chair yoga: Who is going to say what it is and what it isn't? We do know that chair yoga is a gentle form of hatha yoga, practiced while sitting in a chair, or by standing and using a chair as a prop.

If part of the class goes to the mat it is a choice. Some seniors go to these classes and modify their seated postures while others go to the mat at the same time. Still sounds like chair yoga to me.

Om Shanti,
