It isn’t always possible for everyone to get down on to the floor but Yoga is adaptable and there is a Yoga that you can do sitting in a chair.
The exercises are gentle and manageable and help keep the spine and joints mobile.
Chair Yoga is a fun class suitable for people with mobility issues.
It will help to maintain and improve the range of movement individuals have whilst also helping calm and energise.
Breathing and relaxation exercises are a part of the class and there is
absolutely no element of competition.
Each individual is invited to do as much or as little as they are able to do comfortably at any one time.
Chair Yoga classes in Bovey Tracey Wednesdays 11.15-12.15 am at the Wickham Hall, Ashburton Road.
Chair Yoga Classes are 1 hour long £6.00 per class
Yoga classes are 90minutes.
Typically yoga class will begin with a short relaxation to enable students to mentally let go of the outside world and move into their Yoga space.
The body is prepared with a variety of warming and limbering movements designed to prepare the joints of the body for the main postures.
According to the experience and ability of the class, the class then practice a variety of postures designed to lengthen, strengthen and improve
flexibility and function of the whole body.
A short meditation or pranayama practice usually follows and then a deep relaxation, or Yoga Nidra.
Postures are always adapted to suit the experience and ability of individual students and students are encouraged to listen to their own bodies
and to work gently. The teacher is the 'guide or map' but the student is 'driving the car', in control of their own body, and must listen and respond
to how their body is at that moment.
If it hurts, stop! Always work gently and with Awareness.
