Yoga for MS

occurs on: Wednesdays
Book by emailing Lynne.Gibson@groups.mssociety.org.uk
time: 11:30 - 12:30
cost: £3.50 per session
A slow and gentle yoga class specifically for those with MS.

This is a mat based class with chair options and plenty of time to get in and out of postures that gently stretch the body and relax the mind - followed by a guided relaxation.
We start with breathing exercises to improve respiratory health and then move through every part of the body to release tension and to improve co-ordination, mobility and strength.

The class moves at a gentle pace and includes lots of one to one assistance and exploration so that you can also do the exercises at home.

Is this class suitable for yoga beginners?

Absolutely, the class is gentle and slow with lots of guidance and time to explore the movements.

Is this class suitable if I find it difficult to stand or walk?

Yes, this class is specifically designed to support those with MS and as such gently works to stretch out muscles that have become tense.

What happens in this class?

We start with gentle breathing exercises to relax, then we move through every part of the body to release tension and to improve mobility and strength - working towards reducing the imbalances in the body that are associated with MS.
Finally we enjoy a guided relaxation.

Is there someone I can talk to about this class?

Yes, please call the teacher Emma, on 07549 934 944

about the Teacher

Emma Lowther-Wright: Studio Director

Hi, I'm Emma and I am very fortunate to have been trained to teach Ashtanga Yoga by world-renowned John Scott. John is one of the key teachers who brought Ashtanga yoga from India to Europe. Often referred to as 'Preston's yoga teacher' I am honoured to teach yoga to 150-200 people every week!

I am dedicated to and immersed in the Ashtanga practice and continue to travel to study with senior 500hr international teachers including Eddie Stern, Scott Johnson, Lucy Crawford-Scott and Greg Nardi.

I teach with an emphasis on clear communication, empowerment, joy and compassion. I am especially interested in the neuroscience of yoga, how yoga can release physically held mental and emotional tension and how yoga can help us to live with greater joy, confidence and ease.

As well as studio classes I work within the community teaching in workplaces and education settings and to members of our community with physical and mental health challenges including those with deafness, who use a wheelchair and have cognitive challenges.

My classes are heart-lifting, empowering, flowing dances to the rhythm of the breath. I share movement and meditation practices with kindness, encouragement and joy - I hope to welcome you to a class soon.

This was mine and my partners first time and Emma is just so warm, lovely and welcoming. We absolutely loved it, what an all round amazing experience. We will definitely be back.

Thank you to Emma for welcoming us, what a lovely space filled with positive energy.

Amazing Experience

Wonderful experience. I have never done any yoga before and have no flexibility or ability but Emma gave no pressure to do anything other than what felt good for me. I was floating on air afterwards so would recommend to anyone. I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. I'll be back for sure! Don't be afraid if you're on the larger size either- just do what you can. I enjoyed floating in a cocoon the most! and managed to stretch and it felt so good. Thank-you Emma!

Aerial Yoga - Floating on Air

I am only fairly recent to the studio and to Emma as a teacher but wow what a difference it has made to my week each week and my well-being overall. I look forward to my classes and feel amazing after.

Emma is so kind and helpful  coaxing you to push a little further and increase your practice, making it more enjoyable and giving your a stronger basis. The yoga in the park during the pandemic was a life line and such a beautiful idea I almost sad to go back to a studio. We laugh, practice and most of all enjoy the moment. I recommend this school and teacher wholeheartedly ......”  Anna

Wow - what a difference!

I have practiced yoga with many teachers but have learnt so much from Emma. Her explanations are very clear and really help me to get more from each posture and my practice. I always feel wonderful after her yoga classes. Thank you for sharing your knowledge Emma. Pauline

Learnt so much
