SIT & STRETCH CHAIR YOGA
Utilising a chair, Sit & Stretch Yoga is perfect for anyone preparing for surgery (pre-habilitation), recovering from injury or illness, or with mobility issues, disabilities, or weight/age-related issues to practice yoga without the need to get down onto the floor. We use all the same concepts and poses as a regular yoga class and change them to make them more accessible to everyone regardless of age and ability. These one hour classes assist in increasing flexibility, range of movement, strength and balance as well as offering breathing and relaxation to reduce stress and tension and encourage improved sleep.
Hatha is a style of yoga which focuses on building physical strength as well as cultivating harmony, mentally and emotionally. Join me as we work with the body into postures and breathing/ relaxation techniques towards calming the mind, strengthening the body and nourishing the soul.

L and G
"Yoga has been the mainstay of my well-being for many years now. There is no other exercise like it, for both body & mind; and it makes no difference if you are a total beginner or an old hand – with proper guidance anyone can get great benefit from this ancient practice. I joined Karen’s yoga classes when she began teaching in Barraba. It was soon apparent how lucky we were to have someone who could deliver physical and verbal instructions clearly, explain the benefits perfectly, and be supportive, attentive, kind and encouraging to everyone in the class, no matter what their experience. Karen has the ability to be precise, technical and exacting on one hand, yet be warm, nurturing and compassionate on the other – and she can move between the two at ease. The classes have become like an extended family – fun, challenging, grounding, relaxing, and rewarding in ways you might never expect.”
"I enjoy: Relaxed exercises in good company.
Yoga: keeps muscle tone up. Learns to stimulate the mind.
Beneficial , health wise, a great activity by a local teacher."
(Barraba Sit & Stretch class)
I enjoy: The physical feeling of stretching muscles and the challenge of doing it a little better every week. Yoga has benefited my life: I was getting stiff, and yoga has allowed me to loosen up and has improved my balance. I feel more confident and ready for activity. I like Karen’s peaceful leadership and her encouragement to be the best that you can be. I also like the relaxation sessions and wind-down.
