Yoga for Stroke Survivors – Stroke Association @ Asda, Watford
These classes are specifically designed to aid stroke survivors in their long-term rehabilitation.
Physical exercises focus on targeted issues such as balance, stretching, strengthening and co-ordination. Anxiety, breathing problems and speech are addressed through breath-work, sound and relaxation techniques.
Please contact the Stroke Association to find out more and book your place.
Yoga for Cancer @ Chai Cancer Care, Hendon, NW4 1EH
Tuesday and Wednesday 10.30am – 12.00 noon
Cancer can wreak havoc on the body, the mind and the emotions.
Therefore, these restorative classes are based around using yoga to gently move the body, calm the mind and help cope with stress and anxiety. We work with therapeutic postures and sequences supported by the breath to address any particular issues that an individual may be experiencing thereby creating a supportive and nourishing environment.
Often sessions will begin and end with a relaxation session.
Please contact Chai Cancer Care to find out more.

Chair Yoga – 45+ Park Street Village Hall
Friday 11.00am-12.00 noon
- £5.00 per session. To find out more please contact me directly.
Chair yoga is a general term for a session where yoga poses are modified, so that they can be done either seated or standing. Using the chair for support ensures a safe but challenging practice, thus yoga becomes accessible to people who may not be able to stand for long, may have balance issues, or lack the mobility to move easily from standing to lying to seated.
However, participants can still expect to enjoy all the health benefits of yoga, such as stretching, improved muscle tone, better breathing habits, meditation, etc.
Yoga for Parkinson’s Disease – class currently not running
In these lessons yoga is used to address the numerous side-effects of the disease, in order to help students in their daily activities. We look at particular issues that individuals are experiencing and through specifically designed exercises, breath-work and relaxation, we aim to help and support all body systems.
Although this class isn’t currently running, 1:1 sessions for those with Parkinson’s Disease are available.
If you are interested in me running a class for a particular group, please do get in touch.
