This is a gentle form of yoga suitable for all abilities and particularly beneficial for anyone who has limited mobility, or lack of space to roll out a yoga mat. It can also be a great way to take your yoga practice into the workplace to keep you mobile and to help reduce aches and pains. Sessions are open to anyone - this is the one mixed class that I offer so dads, mums, grannies, grandads, brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts, sons and daughters are all welcome.
Yoga stretches are done either sitting on an upright chair or standing and holding on to the back of the chair. Sometimes a scarf or cushion might be used as an additional aid.
The sessions start with breathing awareness, joint release (warm up), gentle stretches and a short relaxation to finish. Many postures will be repeated each week to give you confidence and build up the muscle memory to be able to practice between sessions if you wish to do so.
Chair Yoga can help promote mental and physical balance and a feeling of calm vitality. This could be the key to a stress free and healthy new you. Through its known effects on the neuroendocrine system yoga helps stabilise hormonal levels and creates new foundations for emotional stability in addition to physical benefits including improved blood circulation, postural alignment. muscle tone and balance. Practices are easy to follow and suitable for all ages, from beginners to the most experienced yoga practitioners. Recent research shows that anxiety and back pain respond well to simple yoga exercise programmes and as an experienced practitioner I am abke to tailor these yoga practices to meet individual needs.
