Short excerpt




Chair Yoga aims to give you the experience and benefits of classical yoga,

even if you have mobility issues or find regular yoga a challenge.


Create your space

You will need prepare your yoga space at home. You will need enough room with space around you to bring your arms up overhead and to the sides. Ideally a sturdy hard back chair (dining room chair), with support under your feet to bring the thighs parallel to the floor. If you have yoga blocks that might be useful, however we can be creative with household items too; for example a sturdy book or a strong box.



Ensure that furniture is far enough away from you and your practice area to avoid injury and be please be mindful of any pets who share your space.


It is recommended that you have a blanket or extra layer for relaxation.


What to wear

Wear clothes that are comfortable and non restricting, women usually wear leggings and a T-shirt. Men usually wear training bottoms/shorts and a T-shirt. Bare feet is normal during class, (non slip socks could be worn in winter).


Preparation


Try to allow at least two hours after a meal before you join the class (have a light snack if necessary), have some drinking water available during practice.


Yoga Kula / Community


Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as 'community', 'clan' or tribe. A sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice yoga. The kula is considered sacred because it is a group of people who come together freely, with intention and a shared sense of purpose. In this way, the traditional idea of yoga as a personal and individual practice can be expanded to include more social aspects and experiences of connection with others as well as the self. If we harness the power of connection with loving intention, we can influence even greater positive changes in the larger community outside our yoga world.



'Our yoga practice allows us to know and trust ourselves more fully'.  



Highly beneficial for people with limited mobility or minor injury, hypertension (high blood pressure), anxiety, ME, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, vertigo (medical), multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, carpel tunnel syndrome, clinical depression and chronic pain.


Chair yoga is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. Often the poses, or asanas, are adaptations of Hatha yoga poses, it is a great practise for everyone, as it promotes flexibility, strengthens muscles and deepens personal body awareness. 


Students can learn many kinds of yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and ways of relaxation, with the aid of a chair.
