CLASS DESCRIPTION

 

CHAIR YOGA
Enjoy all the benefits of yoga while seated. Absolute beginners are very welcome + those that prefer or require a seated class.

Boost circulation, improve balance, posture, flexibility and range of movement. Sessions include a breathing exercise, guided meditation or mindfulness technique. Some yoga will be done standing while using the chair back for support to build balance and leg strength

GENTLE HATHA YOGA

Criteria for attendance Gentle mat yoga requires participants to be able to lie down on a yoga mat and get up and down off the floor for simple standing poses. You’ll be guided through a range of yoga postures & practices to release muscle tension + improve flexibility and balance. Sessions include a breathing exercise, guided meditation or mindfulness technique
 

HATHA YOGA
Criteria for attendance - This is the class for you if you can get up and down off the floor with ease, lie on your back, sides, front and perhaps kneel and sit for a short period on the mat + if you've done some yoga before. This class is stronger than the Gentle Mat Class but we'll still work within your ability on the day. Offering a different therapeutic theme each week, you’ll be guided through a range of yoga postures & a breathing exercise, guided meditation or mindfulness technique
