Celebrate International Yoga Day 2020 – 21st June


Brighton yoga foundation international yoga day

To celebrate International Yoga Day the Brighton Yoga Foundation will be offering two free online community yoga classes. These are a taste of our current online Community Outreach Programme, which offers free, gentle, and accessible yoga to many vulnerable members of our community. We encourage anyone who feels they might benefit physically or emotionally from some gentle yoga, to join us on Sun 21st June.

Chair Yoga - Sunday 21st June 10 AM - All welcome (45 minutes)

This very gentle yoga practice (which can also be practiced from a mat) is designed for those with reduced stability, mobility, or other

physical restrictions. You will be guided through gentle joint rotations, stretches, breath awareness, and guided relaxation to bring some ease into the body and mind.

Therapeutic Yoga - Sunday 21st June 2pm WOMEN only - (45 minutes) 

This class is designed to gently address some of the physical and emotional challenges faced by those suffering with chronic physical and mental health conditions. Through a combination of gentle, trauma aware movement, breathwork, and meditation techniques, the class enables participants to reconnect to awareness of mind and body. This class is a reflection of the yoga that the BYF currently offer as part of their community outreach programme.
