Chair Based Yoga - Beginners & Improvers

Ref: C2527614

Join us for this friendly and supportive course from the comfort of your own home. Ideal for beginners and less active people, this is a great way to ease into exercise. Physical activity and exercise are a recognised intervention in helping to increase balance, mobility, reaction times, muscle strength and general wellbeing. As a consequence the risk of falling is greatly reduced. Chair Based Yoga is a very safe, gentle and effective way to maintain and promote mobility and independence. There will be a particular focus on breathing practises and relaxation. This course will be all chair based so everyone can take part even those with very restricted mobility. There will be a guided relaxation at the end of each class.

Course aim

To provide a Chair Based Yoga programme, for less active people both beginners and improvers, in order to maintain and / or promote balance, mobility, independence and hopefully decrease the risk of falling
