Yoga – Sydney

This gentle form of yoga, designed by Gen Chris Yangchen, is a combination of yoga asanas ( exercises) and meditation for those who are stressed, chronically ill, elderly and disabled.

The yoga is designed to raise energy, provide flexibility, promote balance, calm the mind and improve meditation.

It forms the mind, body discipline and is a system of relaxation, working to integrate and balance the physical and the psychological to achieve both mental and physical health.

Class 1 Seated Yoga:  for the chronically ill and the elderly

Class 2 Mat Yoga:  for those who are stressed and have health problems

Note: New participants to either yoga class must first undergo an assessment. If you are interested, please email us at to make an appointment.
