Chair Yoga (Pirton)
Those of you with disabilities, weight challenges, inflexibility, or who just cannot get on the floor for whatever reason can benefit from practice of yoga sitting on or standing close to a chair. Come and try a class!
Transform your energy, peace of mind and quality of life with personal yoga sessions to suit your constitution and needs. Balanced exercise and meditation helps to control mood swings naturally. In a one-to-one yoga lesson we develop a personal practice plan. The plan is composed of postures, breathing, relaxation, concentration and meditation.
Yoga is a recommended exercise from 14 weeks after conception. Keeping mobile through gentle stretching, breathing and relaxing helps to prevent, or minimise pregnancy-related problems such a backache, sciatica, swollen limbs, constipation and insomnia. The classes will aim to improve the experience of pregnancy, birth and motherhood and promote friendships for ongoing support. Idunn is a mother and grandmother. She has practiced and taught yoga for many years. Idunn has benefited from the excellent teachings of Wendy Teasdill (British Wheel of Yoga pregnancy module).
