Your questions answered
I use a wheelchair or walking aid. Can I come to in person classes?
Yes, everyone is very welcome. All premises have close by free parking, level ground floor access and fully accessible toilets. I have up to date Manual Handling training through my NHS job and am able to provide assistance to people using wheelchairs, walking aids, splints or orthoses.
What equipment do I need?
For in person classes we will provide mats and chairs. I have a massage table that you can use for lying postures if getting up and down from the floor is difficult. If you can, please bring a blanket and a pillow If this is too much to carry or you don't have these things it is no problem.
At home, please can you have a sturdy chair, a blanket and a pillow to hand. You may want to do the lying movements on your bed if it is difficult getting on and off the floor.
