We teach at Saint Augustines Church Hall, an accessible, warm and friendly space.

We teach our Gentle Chair Yoga and Exercise class on a Monday, 1:30-2:30pm.

Chair Yoga and exercise include gentle, flowing movements that allow participants to improve mobility, balance, aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility in a gentle, accessible way.

People can stay seated, use the chair as support or do exercises free standing – making our classes accessible to all!

We ran a 6 week free course, funded by Versus Arthritis and The National Lottery Community Fund. The class was so popular, we have kept the class running, where participants fund and support the class. classes are £5.00 a session, to help with costs.

  1. Is chair yoga something we could incorporate into a daily work schedule? – like for someone who spends a long day at the desk, behind a computer screen. Could it work to have 5 min yoga breaks from your chair, say 5 times a day, or would you need to allocate one longer session?

  2. Haven’t really thought about the health benefits of yoga. But joining a yoga class soon is something that would occupy my free time. Maybe an online class will do.

  3. Yoga is wonderful! It helped me so much with my back trauma recovery, I am forever thankful. I do believe there should be more yoga places and especially places for older people to get the experience for their health. I do think there is too much of esoteric vibe around it in so many points that people tend to overlook the core. The place looks great, I wish more yoga places been like that.
