Online-IST-Gentle Years Chair Yoga with Lina Newstead

Tutor: Lina Newstead

Date: 4th July 2020

Time: 10:00 - 16:00


Type of Event: CPD Days

Places Available: 0

This interactive and practical online  workshop will enable us to develop our knowledge of teaching chair-based yoga along with an understanding of the special needs of the Gentle Years. Lina will guide us through a chair-based class for those challenged physically, cognitively and socially as a result of the ageing process. Group work will facilitate the sharing of ideas on the creative use of props and how to create a flowing chair-based practice to bring about an increased state of physical and mental wellbeing.

Lina believes that yoga can be practised from the cradle and well into old age with appropriate adaptation. She has ten years’ experience of this style of teaching and has qualified in Gentle Years Yoga Teacher Training and is currently rolling out this programme in the SE Region. 

This workshop will be in 2 sessions

session 1-10.00-12.30
