Seated Yoga

Sessions to suit you

Find your perfect class

Seated yoga is a gentle practice in which postures are performed while seated and/or with the aid of a chair. Chair yoga classes are suitable for those with physical disabilities or who typically might find a typical yoga session too challenging. It is also a great form of yoga for beginners or anyone who wants to focus on a gentle practice.

Introduction to Seated YOGA

Seated yoga is a gentle practice in which postures are performed while seated and/or with the aid of a chair. If you are unable to stand or lower to the floor this will be factored in by the instructor. The poses, or asanas, are often adaptations of modern yoga poses.

As with many forms of exercise, seated yoga can be modified for people of varying abilities. Our yoga classes are suitable for all levels. We have expert teachers who can adapt and guide you throughout so you will leave feeling relaxed, recharged and energised.

Benefits of Seated Yoga

Improves Flexibility - When it comes to flexibility, the rule is “use it or lose it.” by gently challenging your body with chair yoga, you can increase your flexibility and improve your mobility.

Improved Strength - Strengthening your body will allow you to continue with hobbies and daily activities independently for many more years to come. A stronger body will improve balance and muscle control. 

Improved Proprioception - Proprioception is the ability to sense where your body is in space. Improving this coordination develops. In addition, your risk of falling decreases.

Pain Management - Through meditation and paying attention to your breath, you can help your body and mind to cope with the pain.

Focuses Your Mind - Yoga encourages a mindful state, helping you to feel relaxed and calm reducing stress levels.

A Great Social - Need we say anymore!
