Get fit where you sit.
“Hi, My name is Jackie and join me for an uplifting and fun Chair Yoga and Dance Class. Chair Yoga is yoga where the poses have been adapted so they can be done while seated in a chair or using the chair as a prop while standing. This class is unique in that it contains a blend of dance as well as yoga. No class is the same! My approach is to teach people rather than postures so fun is guaranteed. The aim is to improve posture, improve mobility and general flexibility.
It is an accessible class which takes into account that each body is different depending on proportions, flexibility, state of mind, health factors, strength, or lack of or how we feel on that day. There is no strain or pain, no comparisons, no competition, nor feelings of failure or fear. Everyone is perfect just as they are! This class is not about cutting the perfect shape but an opportunity to experience the wonderful mental and physical benefits of yoga and dance - whatever your ability. So come with an open mind and let's set the mind and body free both through yoga and dance!"
