Welcome to Radiance Yoga’s new launch of Chair Yoga!
What is Chair Based Yoga (CBY)?
It is the practice of Yoga using a chair for either the whole practice or part of it. The chair can be used as a means of support for the individual during standing practices. The chair is used by means of adapting the Yoga practice for the individual, making it more accessible to those who are restricted in mobility for various reasons. It is really for anyone; however, it is more unlikely to appeal to those that are more able-bodied.
CBY is for people that struggle with coming up and down from a mat ie those with chronic conditions such as M.E, M.S, and Fibromyalgia. Also, people may struggle with obesity and illnesses related to it.
Older people that are more fragile that want to keep mobile find it helpful to maintain a healthier lifestyle, along with those that are recovering from illness or injury.
Classes require you complete a health questionnaire (PAR-Q) before taking part in any sessions. Please see bottom of page.
