About the Event

This practice of PRIDE Chair Yoga aims to lower the barriers to entry and allow queer and trans folks to explore yoga in a safer, more accessible, and welcoming environment than modern studios often provide.

August 10 at 6:00 pm at the Holiday Inn Sydney Waterfront.

This class is open to anybody who cares to be part of this conversation and space. Your presence is an act of support. Your engagement is allyship. This is unity. 

More on Chair Yoga…

Chair Yoga is one of the gentlest forms of yoga available! Complicated and complex movements are not present in the chair yoga class. Poses are modified so they can be practiced while seated in a chair and these modifications make yoga accessible for all of us! Yoga can understandably seem super intimidating to many of us!

In Chair Yoga, twists, hip openers, forward bends, and mild backbends become possible and accessible. This class will be fun and engaging in supportive ways! Wear comfy clothes & big smiles!

Jamie’s Bio (she/her)

Jamie is grateful to be a guest in Mi’kmaki and recognizes this sacred space as the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.

This fierce femme was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012. In learning to reinvent herself after diagnosis the universe presented her with the possibility of yoga as a practice along with some incredible teachers. After four years of practice, Jamie decided to become a yoga teacher and completed her training in June 2018. She completed her Chair Yoga Certification in October 2018. Both certifications were attained through YOGYAM’s Vineeta Sharma, MSc Yoga, Certified Yoga Therapist.

Jamie believes that laughter borne out of kindness and love is one of the most healing medicines and encourages us all to laugh at ourselves, when or if the moods hits, during this PROUD and safe practice.
