30th March 2019
at Ashington Village Hall

Date: 30th March 2019

Time: 10:00 - 15:45

Location: Ashington Village Hall

Type of Event: IST Days

This interactive and practical workshop, which is based on the Eight Limbs of Yoga, will enable us to develop our knowledge of common conditions found in an ageing population along with an understanding of some chronic conditions causing disabilities.

By the sharing of ideas in workshop style we will learn how to build a flowing chair based yoga practice to enhance and enable yoga for the less able or elderly bringing an increased state of physical and mental wellbeing both in the class setting, at home and in off the mat activities of daily living.

You will need your usual yoga equipment plus any props that you have such as blocks, blankets, straps, stretchy bands, 7” soft-exercise balls, golf ball, tennis ball.

Unfortunately, Mary Mackie is unexpectedly unable to be with us.  She will be at the end of a course of radiotherapy following surgery for breast cancer.

 We are indebted to Lina, who has trained with Mary and is a very experienced DCT and tutor, for stepping in at the last moment to teach the day.

Lina has been practising Yoga since 1975 and teaching for over 20 years. She is a senior British Wheel of Yoga teacher having taught many Foundation Courses & Teacher Training Diploma courses.

She believes that Yoga can be practised from the cradle and well into old age with suitable adaptation.  So the style of physical Yoga that she teaches is inclusive & very therapeutic, with an emphasis on good breathing, deep relaxations & meditation.  This belief led her to start teaching a Chair Yoga class ten years ago.  She has now undertaken the Gentle Years Yoga teacher training and will soon to be rolling out the programme in the South East area
