I believe in yoga for all regardless of age, body shape, gender, ability. I offer Chair based movement Yoga sessions to support people in their journey towards better overall physical and mental wellbeing. I have shared Chair Yoga with a variety of groups including: adults, deaf and blind groups and alzheimer groups. Read testimonials about my yoga classes here.
Chair Yoga Classes are available on request. Check in with me for any current online live classes or if you are you a group or Care Home interested in Gentle, beginner yoga classes - Get in touch!
A few suggestions in preparation for your Chair Yoga session:
Aim not to consume food at least an hour before class
Wear comfortable, loose clothing
Consider most comfortable and appropriate footwear for you - it is possible to do chair yoga in bare feet, socks, slippers or shoes.
You may wish to bring a blanket for the relaxation at the end of class
Consider the chair you will be using, I appreciate often we may need to work with the chair we have, ideally a sturdy, safe chair, not on wheels, with or without arms can be worked with. A firm seat is better than a quishy one for this practice.
It is helpful to work out before a session if possible whether you can sit on your chair towards the front of the seat, sit bones still connected to the chair seat and have all of your feet touching the ground. If this is not possible can you consider bringing the ground to your feet with the help of some sturdy books?
You may like to have to hand some water to sip during /after the class
Remember to wear your smile
It doesn't matter if you're not bendy or flexible
No one cares if you can do every pose, some of them, or hardly any of them
You can (and should) ask questions
The other people in the class are not judging you
Not every kind of yoga class suits every kind of person
Look forward to sharing a Yoga-Nu-U practice with you soon
