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.
