About the Event
With special thanks to funding from Sports England, we are delighted to offer free yoga classes to those aged 70+ who live in the Sunderland area.
Our gentle Iyengar yoga is suitable for all, but aimed at those who may struggle in a general class.
Using chairs and props, this gentle iyengar yoga class makes yoga postures accessible to all without creating stress or strain on your joints . As with all Iyengar yoga classes, everyone works to their own abilities and this class will incorporate gentle yoga, pranayama (breathing) and meditation, creating an all encompassing, holistic yoga class aimed at stretching and strengthening the body, as well as calming the mind from anxiety that may have been caused by social isolation.
Iyengar yoga has been proven to be beneficial to those with medical conditions, however we do not recommend taking part in one of these classes if you have severe health problems or are pregnant. Please contact or check with a medical professional if you are unsure.
All materials and equipment will be provided during yoga classes.
