Women Practicing Yoga Outdoor

I'm Not Bendy Yoga & Chair Exercise
Chair & Mat Work Classes

 

This is a Lower Intensity Work Out for Women who find regular classes too demanding, are just coming back from an injury, an operation, complete beginners or women who haven't exercised for a while. These classes are great for Physical & Mental Well-being and Chronic Pain & Mobility Issues.

 

  • Women Only Classes

  • A Safe Environment

  • Get the Benefits regardless of Age or Physical Fitness Level

 

You could be forgiven for thinking that exercise such as Yoga and Pilates is just for flexible, young women doing acrobatic postures in exotic places and meditating by the sea. It is more than enough to put you off going to your first class.

 

Thankfully, this is not the case and Exercise is for every BODY and we can all have the benefits that come with it

 

First of all – you need to have a sense of humour. It really doesn’t matter if you are not flexible. We are all perfectly imperfect and most of us have old and new injuries, it’s ok to not be ok – let’s work with what we’ve got…

Maybe we are not at our fittest and have a weakness for cake or maybe we find it hard to touch our toes? Maybe we consider ourselves too long in the tooth to start something new? Maybe we don’t want to have to worry about what we are wearing and if our top matches our leggings. Maybe we feel self conscious and prefer to feel comfortable in an all-women environment.

If you can relate to one or more of these then this is probably the class for you. This is a one-of-a-kind experience resulting in a totally unique mind and body experience.

IMPROVE YOUR BONE & MUSCLE STRENGTH, BALANCE,

FLEXIBILITY, HEART AND BRAIN HEALTH

"I'm Not Bendy" Chair Based Exercise Class

This class involves working with the support of a chair in a sitting position and sometimes standing. We use slow, gentle movements to work all the muscle groups of the body, muscles that you may not normally use and stretch out in day to day living. This class is ideal if you are in rehabilitation from an illness, injury or just haven't exercised for a long time. Sufferers of MS, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia and other Autoimmune Disease may benefit from this class.

"Wobbly Yoga" Mat Class

This is a class designed to stretch and work all of the muscles in the body, it is more of a

Yoga / Pilates inspired style exercise session. You will finish feeling relaxed and in-tune with your body. This class is for complete beginners and is a lower intensity work out. This is a no expectations class where we do not believe in "too injured" or "too old". Just turn up and try and be the best version of yourself! Sit out for the poses that don't feel right within your body. Great for Menopause and PMT as well as chronic pain disorders such as Endometriosis and Autoimmune Disease such as Arthritis.

 

This is a non religious / non spiritual class - there will be no chanting, omming or gongs.

We will, however, use breathwork techniques to encourage oxygen flow to rejuvenate and energise our cells.

The classes will exercise and stretch the body to benefit the muscles and massage the internal organs encouraging healing from the inside out.

 

Our sessions are carried out to music.

 

Sensible clothing optional / sense of humour compulsory.
