Yoga is part of an ancient meditative practice originating in India. Yoga postures exist to help deepen meditation, while their broader health benefits for strength, flexibility and balance are now widely recognised.

For many people, the image of the bendy young woman on a yoga mat suggests yoga is not for them. Accessible yoga brings the practice of yoga and all its benefits to everyone.

Chair yoga is … well, yoga! It is yoga adapted for the chair, retaining all the qualities and benefits of conscious breathing, purposeful movement and mindful meditation. Chair yoga is ‘infinitely adjustable’. This means that every posture can be done to a level that suits the user. Any style of yoga can be practised on the chair, from gentle restorative yoga to the most athletic.
