Comments from Wicklow People’s Chair Yoga article:
“I do Chair Yoga for pleasure but it is exercise”
“I have been coming for more than a year and I definitely feel the benefit on my two bad hips. It helps mentally too”
“People think chair yoga is easy but there is a lot of work. Yoga will really relax your mind and, if you have a problem, you just forget about it!”
“The yoga is lovely, amazing, with easy stretching, and you can see people improving. I had a frozen shoulder and then I came here. All of a sudden I was able to pull on the seat belt in the car again”
“I am doing yoga for a year – it helps with the muscles, bones and the body generally. It’s good for wellbeing too”
“I’ve been here since the classes started. It keeps you fit and it keep you going”
“Yoga is very effective for the body”
“My doctor advised me to come because I had trouble with my arm and the exercise is good for it”

We have reduced both our advanced payment fee and our drop in rate. This is with the hope that more students will be able to come along and enjoy the benefits of a Chair Yoga class geared towards senior citizens and people with injuries and physical limitations. With 2 weekly classes, you can switch days between Mondays and Fridays if a particular regular day does not suit – or come twice a week!
In addition to these 2 classes at The Ananta Yoga Studios, Louise is running weekly Chair Yoga classes in Aughrim (Tuesdays), Arklow (Wednesdays) and Laragh (Thursdays) with great response from her students. Louise also runs classes at local nursing homes and other organisations.
There is ample on-street parking right outside the studio and in the surrounding area. Access into the studio is step-free when entering at the rear of the building. We are in close proximity to shops and cafes as well.
Chair Yoga is suitable for those who may find our regular yoga classes too strenuous – those who may be completely new to yoga, recovering from injury or illness or generally less active and mobile. It is also – of course suitable for all yoga students who simply would like to try this method of practice.
The class takes students through centring and breath-work, followed by postures that let the joints move through their range of movement whilst seated or through use of the chair whilst standing. These postures will provide gentle stretching, improved strength and flexibility, as well as helping students to find balance and calm in everyday life.
