Do you want to practise yoga but fear you can’t get into some of the bendy shapes?
Or do you already practise but find theres not really any support or options for certain postures in your body?
Yoga should be accessible to all adn I’m on a mission to make my classes a little more inclusive. (If you have any info or ideas on how I can improve my skills and offerings as a teacher do let me know!)
1. If you suffer from sore knees, pad the knee with a blanket or whatever you have handy in a class (a jumper or scarf works well too, or an extra mat). For support you can use two blocks either side of your front foot to hold on to.
2. If you have access to a chair sit on the edge of the side and slide one leg back. Press into both feet and either hold the back of the chair or reach both hands up.
3. If you are in a class and there’s no props, use the wall. Place one foot towards the wall, step the other back and press your hands into the wall for support.
I’m a British wheel of yoga teacher who is trying to make general yoga classes a little more accessible and inclusive. Let me know what you need more of in a yoga class!!
Have a great week!
