Frontline Yoga delivers accessible classes that are taught with an awareness of trauma and are suitable for anyone with chronic stress, depression, anxiety or PTSD.
The classes focus on developing Resilience, Strength and Connection.
- Resilience - both emotional and psychological to deal with the ongoing challenges and uncertainly of service on the front line.
- Strength – developing both physical and mental strength, to continue facing the rigours of service on the front line or return to full function after injury or illness.
- Connection – reinforcing connection between breath and movement, body and mind, Frontline Professional and the community within which they serve.
Classes are suitable for all ages and ability levels.
Our teachers are experienced in providing accessible yoga that is perfect for beginners. You can participate as much or as little as you feel comfortable.
