Hatha Yoga & Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga is Great when you’re returning to exercise after an injury or surgery. It’s easy to progress at your own pace and level. It accomplishes all exercises with the aid of a Chair.
Yoga cultivates health and wellbeing (physical, emotional, mental and social) through the regular practice of a range of many techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration, self-inquiry and meditation.
