Chair yoga in
Chair Yoga is perfect for residents of care homes. It is safe and inclusive as all the moves are performed on a chair or wheelchair, with several options for each participant.
I have been conducting research with Accessible Chair Yoga CIC and the University of Hertfordshire into the effectiveness of chair yoga as a wellbeing intervention in elderly care homes. Early results are promising.
The benefit of chair yoga over other chair based exercise is that yoga is holistic and works both the mind as well as the body. If you are interested in having a chair yoga class in your care home please do get in touch with me (Keeley) to discuss your needs.
