The breath of life embodies everything that we are and is accessible to everyone - irrespective of age, ability and creed
— Richard Kravetz

WORKSHOP: CHAIR YOGA

Theory and practice around Yoga for those with reduced mobility including asana, pranayama and chanting.

This workshop will be based around yoga in a chair and will provide the necessary tools to practitioners to guide the elderly or less-abled towards maintaining a safe degree of exercise and movement.

The workshop will teach practitioners how to structure and plan a yoga session for people with physical restrictions who are unable to participate in a traditional mat based class, and how chair yoga offers a practical solution by finding ways to reduce complicated manoeuvres and movements to simpler, user-friendly procedures.

The session is relevant to teachers or professionals who wish to make a significant contribution to society  in helping those with single or multiple ailments including Stroke, MS, Dementia, Parkinsons, Mental Health issues, reduced mobility due to injury, sensory impairment and a host of related conditions associated with ageing.
