Yoga Flowly

Back to Activities

Rachel teaches yoga, movement and mindfulness practices to help people with stress and anxiety or with chronic conditions like arthritis or restricted mobility, to get moving and feel better in their bodies again. Sessions are in person or online.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Yoga is a gentle practice that nearly everyone can take part in
  • Gentle movement helps the joints and body in day to day living activities
  • The in-person sessions are also a chance to socialise

What to expect

Rachel was first introduced to yoga in her early 20s when she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. It was recommended as a gentle form of exercise to keep her joints supple and to keep moving. This transformed her life, not only physically, but mentally too. Becoming a yoga teacher was a natural progression for her and because of her own need to adapt movements, it’s her mission to create classes that are inclusive, especially for those that may have limited mobility.

Rachel teaches both in person group sessions, and online sessions.

In-person sessions

Rachel’s slow flow yoga sessions are created to be joint friendly and beginner friendly, incorporating gentle yoga, mindful movement and breath to improve mobility, strength, balance and inner calm. Props are always provided for extra support if needed. These sessions are drop in and cost £3 per person, per session (cash only). If you have any questions at all before attending then feel free to email [email protected]
