I teach yoga through a charitable organisation called Co.As.It at Amici House on Friday mornings. To join us, please register your attendance with the organisers, Co.As.It. Community Services on (07) 3624 6100. Registration, enquiries and payment is handled by the team at Co.As.It who look forward to welcoming you to this course of 4 classes - read the criteria for attending below to decide whether Chair yoga or Mat yoga is the class for you!
AMICI HOUSE is a re-purposed gospel chapel on Bracken Ridge Road that has received a new life as a café and community facility. The centre runs weekly community activities including these yoga classes + art classes and Latin dancing! Amici House is a thriving hub for the local community. Consider coming along with a friend and stay for coffee or lunch after class, most of the meals are made on-site. Amici House has ample on-site parking either in the car park or on the street for your ease
Classes run for around 50-60 minutes and are held in a large hall - if you wear hearing aids, please wear them to class. If you're hard of hearing but don't wear hearing aids, please situate yourself near me during class, or near the speaker. If you can't hear me, please let me know. For your safety, it's important that you can hear clearly how to get into, stay in and get out of the yoga poses
$20 for 4 classes, held over 4 consecutive weeks
Beginners are welcome but please check the criteria for class

CHAIR YOGA 8-9am
Enjoy all the benefits of yoga while seated and standing with the assistance of the chair for balance. 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
DO YOU SUFFER FROM VERTIGO?
Chair yoga can be beneficial
I teach chair yoga where we do a combination of seated and standing yoga poses
Chair yoga is preferred for those with vertigo as it avoids the need to get up and down off the floor with fewer changes in position which can exacerbate the symptoms of vertigo
MAT YOGA 10:30-11:30am
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, kneel and sit for a short period of time on the mat. This class is Multi-Level, with participants choosing the level that suits them. This mat class starts with some stretches/warm-ups, then builds to include some poses that gently build strength in the core stabilising muscles of the body. Class concludes with a guided breathing exercise, guided meditation or mindfulness technique
Please note that bookings are essential prior to attending - contact Co.As.It. Community Services on (07) 3624 6100
Wear comfortable, easy to move in layers to stay warm/cool as the seasons change
If you can't lie on the floor on your back, front and sides, or get up and down from the floor easily/safely, please book into the Chair Yoga class
COMING TO A MAT CLASS?
Please bring a yoga mat and a bath towel/blanket to rest your head on when lying down. If you have two yoga blocks, a bolster and a yoga strap, please bring them
