ADAPTIVE CHAIR YOGA

LOW IMPACT YOGA

Our Adaptive Chair Yoga session is distinguished by its inclusive approach, specifically tailored to accommodate individuals of all ages and abilities. Consequently, this distinctiveness is particularly evident in our adapted form of Yoga, which concentrates on seated or chair-supported practices. In other words, this modification renders our class highly suitable for individuals with restricted mobility or balance concerns, ensuring their full participation and comfort.

Above all, Orenna’s perspective on Adaptive Chair Yoga is gentle and respectful of your body’s unique needs. For instance, we don’t impose poses on your body; instead, we adapt traditional poses to align with your body’s natural motion and anatomical structure. In conclusion, this non-intrusive method promotes alignment, balance, and flexibility while respecting your body’s natural capabilities. 

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Each session is not just about physical well-being; it will also take you on a transformative journey of self-empowerment. In these classes, our primary focus is fostering self-awareness, encouraging you to study and understand yourself through adapted sequences and modified poses. Therefore, this journey of self-discovery can lead you to profound personal growth and transformation, subsequently inspiring you to live your life to the fullest.

What experience do I need?

There are no formal entry requirements; however, you are highly recommended to attend the 'Discover Yoga and Meditation' workshop to maximise the benefits of this session.
