About the Event

A gentle & welcoming class for adults with learning disability

Join Nicky on a Monday afternoon for a beginners relaxation class created especially for people with learning disability.

This is a plain language class with easy to follow instructions and a safe, friendly learning environment.

During the class you can sit on a chair or lay on a mat and listen while Nicky teaches you ways to relax your mind and your body.

You will learn things you can think about to help you relax, and how to use your breathing, gentle movement and making sounds with your voice to help you feel calmer.

You are welcome to bring a support person with you if it is helpful.

- If your support person is at the class just to help you they do not need to pay

- If you are coming with a friend and you both want to do the class you will both need to sign up and pay

It is a good idea to not eat a big meal in the 2 hours before class

Please wear comfy clothes that you move around easily and shoes that you can take off easily.

If you have your own yoga mat you can bring this, or you can borrow a mat from Nicky during the class.

Accessibility and communication information:

The building has two steps to enter and so is not yet wheelchair accessible.

This is a small group class and there will be other students and their support people at the class.

This activity is suitable for people for people who can follow simple instructions, are able to sit or lay calmly during the class, and prefer to learn with clear instructions and easy information.

If you have mobility, communication or other support needs please call emmie on 0412 835 865 or email to talk about your needs.

This class is a stepping stone class for adults with learning disability (including cognitive impairment, autism, brain injury, intellectual disability or other learning barrier). A stepping stone class means that we hope you will learn relaxation skills and find out more about how yoga and other relaxation classes run. You can choose to keep coming to this group, or move onto a different type of relaxation class or yoga class if you want to learn other skills too.

** please let Nicky know if you have any previous or current injuries, health, conditions or are pregnant or post-natal so that I can assess whether the class will be suitable and also suggest any alternatives for you if needed.
