Class Guide

Chair Yoga 

Our gentlest class, suitable for all. A slow and gentle class participated sitting in a chair or wheelchair. Small movements will mobilise the joints and gently increase flexibility, balance and strength while breathing exercises will help improve respiratory health and mood. 

 

Key Points: Suitable for all, including those with pain conditions and diabetes.

 

Gentle Stretch 

A very gentle class suitable for all. The class can be partic​ipated in seated on the floor or in a chair but there are also more options offered for those who might want more movement. Slow small and large movements mobilise joints and gently increase flexibility, balance and strength while breathing exercises will help improve respiratory health and mood. 

 

Key Points: Suitable for all, including those with pain and lung and heart conditions and diabetes.

 

Energetic Yoga

A class for those who do not have physical health conditions that restrict movement and who enjoy movement. Fluid movements synchronised to the breath and much shorter holds of postures, we will repeat the sequence each week so that you gradually learn the movements and can do them at home whenever you like. This class is especially suitable for those with anxiety as the repeated movements bring in preditability and control.

 

Key Points: Suitable for those who are relatively physically fit and who enjoy a challenge. Especially suitable for anyone who is missing their usual fitness classes. Excellent for those with anxiety.

 

Disco Barre

An uplifting, energetic class that combines basic beginner-friendly ballet and yoga moves with dancefloor grooves and 70s and 80s tunes. No need to have any experience with ballet or yoga. Tones legs, bums and arms while having fun. 

 

Key Points: All movements are fully demonstrated so this class is suitable for those with deafness. Although the teacher will be demonstrating standing each move includes arms and legs and so can be practiced in a chair moving what you can, how you can. Also suitable for those who are physically fit who are missing their usual fitness classes. It is useful to have a dining room chair, or wall to be able to use to support balance in this class.

 

Body Groove (from March)

Amazingly fun, uplifting accessible dance class with a difference.

No complicated routines to learn, low-impact and dance as energetically as you like. Rather than just following me exactly, I’ll teach you how to make each movement perfect for your body, no matter what your fitness level, and no matter what limitations you have that day.

 

Key Points: Accessible for all bodies at all ages. Although the teacher will be demonstrating standing each move includes arms and legs and so can be practiced in a chair moving what you can, how you can. Also suitable for those who are physically fit who are missing their usual fitness classes. 

 

Pound Drum-Beat Fit 

A highly adaptable class allowing everyone to move as much or as little as they feel. High energy and upbeat, fun class clapping along to the beat of uplifting songs while lunging and squatting. 

 

Key Points: All movements are fully demonstrated so this class is suitable for those with deafness. Each move includes arms and legs and so can be practiced in a chair moving what you can, how you can. Also suitable for those who are physically fit who are missing their usual fitness classes.

 

 

Bespoke Classes for your community

Although we are aiming to make as many of the sessions as possible available to a wide a group of participants as possible, we are able to offer a limited number of bespoke commissioned classes as part of our funding to meet specific needs of your community members.

 

For example Pound or Disco Barre based in a chair or on the floor.  If this is something you would like to discuss please call or email Emma
