This ‘chair and mat’ workshop shows you how to deepen your practice using the chair as a prop and tool for learning. Prepare to be challenged, using the chair in Yoga isn’t an easy an option as some people might think!

Ending the workshop with a calming guided meditation to offer a sense of ease, space and stillness. Throughout the practice students will have options to use the chair or mat.
