On Tuesdays now, we will have a Chair Yoga class at the Brockagh Centre from 11 a.m. to 12.15 p.m. Chair Yoga is suitable for those who may find regular yoga classes too strenuous – those who may be completely new to yoga, recovering from injury or illness or generally less active and mobile. It is also – of course suitable for all yoga students who simply would like to try this method of practice.
The class takes students through centring and breathwork, followed by postures that let the joints move through their range of movement while seated or through use of the chair while standing. These postures will provide gentle stretching, improved strength and flexibility, as well as helping students to find balance and calm in everyday life. Call Louise at 087 6032202 or Brockagh Centre at 0404 45600.
