This class helps to very gently mobilise and create a sense of awareness and balance through the back - the vertebra, ribcage, shoulders and arms and hands as they relate down into the hips, and up through the neck. The slow pace gently brings the spine into flexion, extension, side bending and twisting either in sitting position or through standing. You will need a chair.

If you want to be able to flow, but your body has more limited mobility, this is a great class for offering variations on common poses. Learn how to lunge safely, how to do chair-supported warrior poses and some gentle chair twists, before closing back at the floor to rest.You will need a chair.

When you're recovering from illness or injury, start slow. Work through a very gentle recovery in this series from the ground up. This first class looks at the feet, ankles, knees and hips. Learn to understand how your body works and find and explore your own movement. This is perfect for those in the beginning stages of recovery or looking to strengthen weaknesses from past injury or illness. Warm up and move through stiff joints and bring overall awareness to the interconnectedness of the feet through the legs to the hips. This class takes place mostly seated in a chair and is accessible to most bodies.
Yoga For Illness and Recovery
How can yoga support us through times of illness and recovery? We talk with Lizzie Reumont, a Jivamukti yoga teacher and Rolfer, who has experienced a number of illnesses through her life. We explore with Lizzie what happens physically and mentally when our body lets us down; how can we practice in a way which nourishes us and supports us; and how we can show up for ourselves as we go through difficult times.
