Chill Club - Yoga for ages 12 - 16 years (online)

Led by Carly Brown

Each class will start with breath work, followed by simple sun salutations to warm up the whole body and begin to connect the breath to movement. Next we will try some standing poses, working on balance, strength and focus. Then some seated postures, holding the poses for a little while, working on lengthening muscles and softening into shapes.

Each session will finish with moon salutations to calm down before a beautiful guided relaxation.

The aim is for each teenager who takes the three week course to learn the sun and moon salutation sequences so that they can practice at home.

Sun salutes are warming and energising so great to do at the start of the day.

Moon salutes are grounding and calming so good to practice at the end of each day.

You will need one yoga mat and one blanket each.

Suitable for ages 12 - 16 years.

Fri 12 - 26 Jun
11.30am – 12pm
£22.50 per 3 week term or £8 per session
Booking cut off time: 9am on the day of each session

We want everyone to be safe while practising yoga at home so please ensure that all participants are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear and that you have suitable space to move in and have cleared the space of any potential hazards.


How do our online classes work?

The classes will take place via a video stream on Zoom where you'll be able to use the camera and audio on your tablet, laptop or other device to see and hear the tutor and other participants.

You simply need to book on to your class or workshop of choice as normal by the cut off time. We'll then send you an email with a link to your session, password and a meeting ID. These will be emailed to you after the booking cut off time, shortly before the class begins.
