About This Retreat
Increasing numbers of people care for or support others either informally as a family member or friend, or in a professional capacity. Yoga can be an effective tool for you when supporting people with a wide range of physical, learning or mental health issues ranging from, general ageing to reduced mobility, down syndrome to dementia, autism to cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis to arthritis. Throughout the retreat we will explore movement, breath, relaxation and simple meditation practices, as well as different techniques and skills that can enhance the yoga experience for both care giver and receiver. This will be a very practical and hands-on course and participants will be encouraged to share alternative yoga practices and ideas with others within the group.More info
