Really want to have keep an active lifestyle? but illness, injury or age is making exercising a challenge, is it making you frustrated? Maybe now’s the time to do something about it.

Forest-Yoga are now offering Chair yoga classes, maybe it could be just the thing for you, it is safe and effective, giving you all the health benefits that a normal yoga practice does, including muscle toning, reduced stress levels, and an improved overall sense of well-being. And despite any limitations you may have, chair yoga can help you feel stronger, increase flexibility, the ability to bend, twist, stretch, and generally move more freely.

It may also benefit you if you have trouble moving through the constant up and down motions of a traditional yoga class, 1 hr Classes are £10 or £36 for a monthly package.


Forest-Yoga are thinking of offering a chair Yoga class on Thursday mornings at 10am in the RBL hall Southampton road Cadnam, so are trying to gauge whether this is something people in our area would like to try! if you or anyone you know would be interested please email me Emma Haye at;
[email protected] or call 07795155118
The benefits of an active lifestyle are highly documented, so it can be incredibly frustrating when age, illness, or injury makes exercising a challenge. Luckily, chair yoga is both safe and effective.
Chair yoga gives you all the health benefits that a normal yoga practice does, including muscle toning, reduced stress levels, better breathing habits, an improved overall sense of well-being, and it can even help you sleep better.
Despite any limitations you may have, chair yoga can help you feel stronger, increase flexibility, the ability to bend, twist, stretch, and to move more freely. It also improves proprioception, this is your ability to accurately sense where your body is in space, with better proprioception your coordination improves and so the risk of falling decreases.
Chair yoga is an ideal exercise for anyone suffering from conditions, such as chronic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoporosis, and multiple sclerosis. It may also benefit you if you have trouble moving through the up and down motions of traditional yoga, chair yoga allows you to stay safe and stabilized.


Yoga or Pilates?
Did you know they are actually very similar? both help improve posture, lengthen and strengthen the body, help with weight loss, increase flexibility and balance, and improve cardiovascular health, there are also many moves that cross over into both forms of exercise.

Yoga also eases stress and anxiety by focusing on your breath and using it to help you in and out of the poses, it also helps improve other sports like running, cycling, golf and horse riding.

Often yoga is thought to be the easy option! my classes will challenge you physically are dynamic and energetic, you will know you've had a work out after! but the joy of yoga is that you can go at your own pace as there are many different pose variations you can choose during the class depending on how challenged you want to be on any given day, so it is ideal for beginners as well as the more experienced.

If you fancy giving it a try I have a new class just started on Wednesday mornings at 10:15, or Wednesday and Thursday at 6pm (only 3 spaces left for both the evening classes) all classes held in the British Legion Hall, Cadnam.

First class is just £5, leave me a message if your interested or call 07795155118, for more information check out the website;

10 Reasons you can’t do Yoga and why none of them are true.

1- I’m too inflexible I can’t even touch my toes.
That’s like saying you can’t attend a French class because you don’t speak French, Yoga will give you flexibility, and those toes will get closer.
2- I don’t have the right body for it.
You have a body? You can do Yoga.
3- I’ll have to wear expensive tight clothes.
You can wear jogging bottoms and a t-shirt you do not need fancy clothing.
4- I don’t have a Yoga mat.
We can provide Yoga Mats which are sanitised after every class, we also offer props like blocks to help everyone achieve poses that may otherwise seem difficult.
5- Everyone’s going to be looking at me.
There is no EGO in Yoga, eyes on your mat and not on the room that’s my motto, plus it stops you falling over! Seriously though this hour is about you, what everyone else is doing is irrelevant.
6- I have an ailment, injury or pain.
Let’s face it who doesn’t? be it back, shoulders, or knee limitations, but there are so many alternative poses that if one is not accessible for you there will be one more suitable, plus Yoga can improve old injuries as it strengthens muscles around the problem area.
7- I’m too old.
You are never too old you can even do Yoga in a chair.
8- Yoga is for women.
Yoga was originally designed for men by men? yes women can often outnumber men in a class, but those that do Yoga and there are more than you think, say it greatly improves their golf swing, can help with post run recovery and is brilliant for increasing muscle tone, many sportsmen do Yoga including the New Zealand Rugby team.
9- I’m not very spiritual.
Neither am I, as a teacher I understand and respect the philosophy, but my classes focus more on the Physical and mindful element’s.
10- I just don’t have the time.
It’s worth making time for Yoga, it has to many benefits to list but be assured Yoga will give your mind the space to relax, giving you that timeout for yourself!

I offer 2 classes a week suitable for all ages and abilities from beginners to full on Yogis, first class is ½ price. Drop in price £10 or 4 week pass £36

If Dynamic, energetic and faster paced is your thing then try a Vinyasa class on Wednesdays.
If you want Slow and gentle, mindful but still challenging, then Hatha is for you on Thursdays.

We are a friendly bunch we don’t take ourselves to seriously and we always have a giggle.
Classes are at 6pm in the British legion Hall, Cadnam, class limit 10.

Why not see what it’s like for yourself, click the email link below to book your first ½ price class.

Are you tired? Do you come home from work collapse on the settee and complain “I am so tired”? You feel exhausted your neck aches your head hurts, and so on and so on.
Yoga exercises can be used to release stress and tension, to stimulate and energise your mind body and soul, and because it’s so good for you, you get to indulge in some me-time without feeling guilty.
The body’s natural energy source is oxygen. Yoga teaches you how to breathe correctly, how to find your breath in everyday situations and take better care of yourself, helping reduce anxiety and calm the mind, so you feel energised, revitalised, able to concentrate and have more energy.
Yoga exercises are designed to gently stretch your muscles, increase the range of flexibility in your joints and bring suppleness to your spine, all helping to soothe your aching neck and back. Studies show that regular yoga practice can help to reduce blood pressure, improve your mood, and help you sleep better.
Maybe it time to see for yourself the benefits Yoga can bring to your life.
