This will be offered as a livestream via ZOOM . Come and try a chair yoga class and learn how to modify and create interesting and helpful practices for all types of bodies.
Having taught chair yoga in a care home, offices, and at my own studio I’m currently offering chair yoga for refugees and asylum seekers, and twice a week run an open-to-all live-streaming class through Zoom.
This course will provide you with new skills and creative ideas to offer to your friends, family or in classes. It’s a great practice for everyone, not just seniors and the less able-bodied, but also those who would like to learn different ways to enjoy their yoga practice without a mat: travellers, office workers…and anyone who finds themselves sitting down with 5 minutes to spare.

This workshop will be invaluable for anyone wishing to learn to make yoga accessible for all and how to incorporate different requirements within one group. We’ll look at sitting in a chair, standing and balancing with the aid of a chair and moving around the chair including:
- structure and planning
- use of props
- working with physical restrictions and limited mobility
- modifications for seniors and less able-bodies
- modifications for those with greater strength and flexibility
We’ll be a small group of 20 maximum , offering plenty of opportunity for questions, feedback and discussion.
