 FREE CLASSES             

FREE 8 week Chair-based Yoga classes

Starting Monday 12 May 2022, 8 weeks of free yoga classes at Cardiff Hubs. These classes are the same as my Accessible Yoga classes but are funded by Cardiff Wellbeing Support Services, so you can come along for free!

 

Designed to fit your body in all its unique glory, this practice is for anyone who wants to ease back into movement, people recovering from injury, living with chronic pain, illness and/or disability. This is a class suitable for any ability level.

No classes on 2nd and 3rd June 2022

The pace of the class will be slow and accommodating, as I guide you through your practice. There will be a focus on mobility, postural ease and the breath. We will use props (such as chairs, blocks, cushions) to support your body and satisfy your needs so that your breath can flow and you can participate in the movements with ease. Caregivers are welcome to participate, and a place will need to be booked for them due to number restrictions.

Who are these classes for?

Anyone and everyone! That's the beauty of accessible yoga. This class is designed for everyone to enjoy the benefits of yoga. It is ideal for anyone who struggle to get up and down from the floor e.g. due to knee or hip injuries, arthritis, etc, . Anyone looking to return to yoga after a prolonged break, people who have always wanted to try yoga but aren't sure where to start, or as part of a recovery plan, but it is also enjoyable for yoga students of any level looking for a gentle, stress-relieving class

 

What is the class like?

A slow flow class, incorporating movement, breath and meditation, with variations and modifications to suit. Most or all of the class can be done from seated. You will utilise the chair as a seat or support to make poses accessible, and to find new ways to stretch or strengthen the body. All postures, including ones traditionally done seated or standing, can be adapted even if you cannot stand or cannot come down to the floor. The focus will be on combining the breath with movement. We will start with a warm-up, move on to a bit of a flow and finish with a rest pose. Classes can also include breathwork and meditation.

Please arrive on time, we will use the first 5 minutes to sanitise, sign in, get settled etc before we start. The last 5 minutes of the slot will be for cleaning/sanitising in line with covid guidance.
