A few weeks ago I was teaching chair yoga at Filwood Community Centre for their International Women’s Day event. After the class I spoke to a lady from the Bristol based charity, Young & Free. She asked whether I could teach an inclusive wheelchair friendly yoga class to her group, which of course, I happily accepted.
Sadly, due to the COVID situation the class will have to be delayed, however I was so excited about teaching the group, I decided to film a 30 minute inclusive wheelchair friendly yoga class.
So to the members of Young & Free, I made this online yoga video for you. I hope you enjoy it 🙂 Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions.
Wheelchair Friendly Yoga Class
This inclusive class is a seated class, which can also be done in a wheelchair. It can also be done standing, for those people that can’t sit for long periods of time. All ages and fitness levels welcome!
This class will help improve mobility in the spine and hips, with some gentle movements, which you can do at any time of the day. We will also be working the hands, arms, shoulders and upper body by creating a bit of heat in these muscle groups. So though this is a gentle class, it may challenge you at times. Of course, always listen to your body, and if you feel any pain then please ease out of the pose.
No props are needed, accept for a chair. You might like a pillow to sit on. You can also use a belt, strap or rolled up towel for one of the arm stretches, but that’s optional.
If you enjoyed this class and would like more, check out my yoga sequence for the neck, shoulders and upper back. Or sign up to my email list to be notified of my Wednesday weekly classes.
