Welcome to Yogasmiths gentle years yoga class OnLine!
We are pleased to be taking our Gentle Years Yoga Class online.
Our Gentle Years Yoga Class Online is a chair based yoga suitable for anyone who wishes to or needs to take their yoga practice a little more gently. This can include people with age related health conditions or health conditions that require a yoga practice that is modified.
We have been teaching Gentle Years Yoga since January 2018. We were some of the earliest teachers to be trained in Gentle Years Yoga through the British Wheel of Yoga. Our classes have proved very popular and lots of friends have been made.
Gentle Years Yoga is an authentic traditional Hatha yoga practice that has been modified to be chair based. A 75 minute class will include breathing exercises, pulse raising activities, concentration activities, co-ordination activities, resistance work, yoga postures and a relaxation. It is suitable for all and can be adapted for all.
Class is followed by optional chat on Zoom for people to chat to one another.

The webpage also has information and advice about attending a yoga class for the first time. There are also biog’s for both teachers on the website.
You will need a chair to sit on to attend this class.
In our face to face classes we use balls, bean bags and resistance bands. You may wish to have a cushion to hand and a couple of tins (metal food tins in place of bean bags), also a dressing gown cord or a belt (in place of a resistance band). Do not worry if you do not have any of these items as they are not essential for attendance.
We look forward to guiding you through your yoga practice.
