Information on the yoga session:
Passionate About Yoga From the tutor
Yoga is a practice that has huge benefits for our physical and mental health. I am passionate that it has something to offer everybody, regardless of their age, gender, race, size, shape, background and level of fitness. It has nothing to do with religion, contortion or gymnastics.
The benefits of yoga
These are increasingly supported by scientific research:
It is a great way to gain flexibility and strengthen the body
- It lubricates your joints and massages your muscles
- It improves your balance and helps prevent dangerous falls later in life
- You become more aware of your posture and helpful movements
- The breathing and relaxation element help to reduce stress
What we will be doing
We will be looking at how yoga can be done anywhere and in the smallest of spaces. In this session the only equipment you need is a chair. We will be doing breathing and simple postures, sitting down and standing.
What You Need for the Session
You only need to bring yourself and to have a dining-room type chair. Wear some loose and comfortable clothing. If possible, find a nice quiet space in your home.
What I Need for the Session

Of course, this would be confidential and only kept for the purposes of this class.
I have spent four decades working in education teaching people from eleven to seventy. In the last five years I have trained as a yoga teacher and qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga.
