The beginners and mixed abilities
For beginners or for those looking to develop their practice, poses are adapted for all capabilities, variations and modifications are offered in the poses to enable correct alignment and at the correct level for individuals.
The restorative classes: NHS referrals welcome.
Suitable for all ages and are generally aimed at people with limited flexibility, recovering from illness or injury or suffering from anxiety or stress. Restorative yoga uses adaptations of classic yoga postures during which your body is passively supported using props. This will allow your body to stay in the poses for longer periods of time (5-15 minutes depending on the pose and the individual). The focus is less on stretching and strengthening and more on releasing tension and increasing circulation and flexibility. There is minimum intensity and a regular practice can improve the immune system and restore the body and mind. The restorative classes are ideal for those with limited flexibility, stiff and aching joints, suffering from stress or anxiety or recovering from illness or injury. Places are limited to keep the classes small.
Chair Yoga for the work place or residential home
Sessions on request are also available to the workplace or to residential homes for the elderly. The practices are designed to restore movement and flexibility, balance and focus. Ideal for the busy stressful workplace or for those with physical limitations, or individuals whose circumstances require long periods of sitting.
