In the heart of Uxbridge, from the very welcoming Christ church Chapel the adaptive yoga class students have become a community. Friendships have been formed and students often gather early before class for a cup of tea in the church café.
I have attended further training with Mathew Sanford and from then changed the disability yoga to now call the class an Adaptive Yoga Class.
Classical yoga is adapted to suit everyone, with any ability. This is a chair-based class, some students who are able to may work on the mat/floor or standing, but I explore finding ways to move, motivate and inspire a full range of body movements to everyone’s capability. I introduce traditional breathing practices, some sound work, movements and classic postures, we rest and we move into meditative awareness. I love to infuse the class with yogic philosophy so students have something to take away with them from class.
Students in wheelchairs as well as with guide dogs are welcome. Any disability, limited mobility, long-term illness, stroke recovery, MS, CP, CFS, Parkinsons, autism, learning challenges, sight and hearing impaired, and ALL are welcome. Carers can stay and participate for free and will be required to stay to support their client where necessary.
We have a healthy attitude in class to focus on what we can do. Class returns from 22nd October 2020, after a COVID break, to be an online/virtual class via Zoom, until we can safely return to The Chapel in Uxbridge.
