Chair Yoga

Chair yoga is exactly as it sounds, yoga in your chair!

Sitting at a desk all day produces poor movement patterns and has long-term side effects. Repetitive positioning affects posture, causing muscle strain and fatigue. Chair yoga classes are specifically adapted and tailored to suit the needs of participants, in the corporate workplace.  

 

One of the fabulous things about chair yoga is that participants don't need to change out of their work attire, unless they would like to. Functional movement in the chair focuses on stretching and strengthening areas of tension, (shoulders, neck, back, hamstrings, wrists).

 

We practise optimal desk posture, as well as relaxation and breathing techniques to combat built-up stress from sitting at a desk for long periods. Individuals can practise the various exercises throughout the day.

 

No experience is required, classes are tailored to suit all fitness levels and abilities.

A free consultation is provided to discuss and identify your needs and desired outcomes for your employees.

 

Zoom classes also available. Max 15 participants per class

Mat Yoga Classes

Most of our classes are all-levels and are suitable for everyone, including absolute beginners.

Many people worry that they’re not flexible enough to do yoga however, our classes focus on strength and mobility which is completely different from flexibility. So don’t worry! If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to address them with us.

 

Classes start with relaxed breathing, which is part of what makes yoga so calming for many people. We will flow through yoga postures, do balance work, and learn how to move functionally. Sequences are designed to retrain old movement patterns and postural imbalances. Our aim is for participants to build strength and stability while focusing on their breath. We finish with a relaxing meditation, where the goal is to surrender and rest.

We also offer an 8-week beginners yoga course, where participants are able to learn the foundations of a safe and healthy yoga practice. This includes breathwork, an introduction to yoga, philosophy, posture, alignment, basic poses, and guided meditation.

Classes can also be revved up, for seasoned yogis who like a workout!
