Positive Movement is based upon a form of Yoga (called “Adaptive Yoga”) developed in America especially for people whose disability prevent them from experiencing the benefits which can be derived from traditional Yoga postures. We have integrated this technique with the principles of the Alexander Technique – an approach that teaches people how to make changes in posture and simple movements so as to minimize pain and chronic muscle strain – which we have used with groups of older people for several decades with great success. Read the history of Positive Movement here.
Participants, in small groups of about 10 people, learn techniques for improving and maintaining strength, flexibility, balance and co-ordination (thus helping to prevent falls) and have an opportunity, immediately following the structured class session, to meet new people and socialise over a cup of tea with their peers.

Positive Movement tutors are all highly qualified, experienced Yoga teachers who have undertaken an extensive training programme designed and delivered by our Positive Movement trainers.
