How will I benefit from Gentle Years Yoga©?

The key benefits of a seated yoga programme, like Gentle Years Yoga© [GYY] are to:

  • encourage fluid breathing and postural alignment;
  • improve fine motor skills;
  • strengthen your muscles;
  • increase your flexibility, balance and mobility, and reduce pain;
  • improve mental, social and emotional well-being;
  • promote independence.

Seated, sit-to-stand and/or gentle mat-based yoga are all safe and effective ways to increase your physical activity to the recommended levels for adults and older adults.

GYY is an inclusive movement practice for adults and older adults with a wide range of health conditions. As a BWY Gentle Years Yoga© teacher, I am able to offer different modifications to suit you and your body.

A GYY yoga class typically includes:

  • working with the breath,
  • warm ups including gentle pulse raisers,
  • co-ordination and concentration activities,
  • balance improvement exercises,
  • resistance work for muscle strengthening,
  • modified yoga postures,
  • relaxation.

GYY is ideal for you if you have difficulty getting up and down from the floor and/or would feel more comfortable practising yoga from a chair. This allows everyone to participate safely at their own level and enjoy their yoga.

*LATEST NEWS* In February 2023 my *NEW* Tuesday morning GYY community class in Crawley, Hampshire will launch with free tasters so why not join us then?
