Queer Yoga

Saturday 15 Jun 2024 2:00pm

Workshop: Other

Ages: Adults (18+)

Take some time to reconnect and give our mind and bodies some much needed TLC. We will ease ourselves into a gentle hour of breath and movement where your queerness is totally welcome. Hosted by Claire Griggs - each session will introduce you to soothing and relaxing movement and breathing techniques.

Claire’s class takes a restorative approach and they do not use any hands on adjustments during the session. 

We want to ensure a safe, relaxing environment for getting back in touch with our bodies, where you can be your full self. This is a casual drop-in class.

Sessions will run for 60 mins.

FAQ

Do I need to bring a mat?

Bring your own if you can but we will have a few spare just in case. You are welcome to bring a blanket and cup of tea to keep yourself extra cosy if you wish. 

Do I need to be flexible?

Not at all! These classes are designed to focus more on our mental well being and our connection to our body than how strong or flexible you are.  

What shall I wear?

You can dress however you like, we recommend you go for something comfy. Ensure that you can move easily and have layers to keep you warm. You might also want to bring some fluffy socks or a blanket to keep you extra cosy.

Do I need to be queer to attend?

Not at all, but you need to respect that this is a space by and for queer people. Avoid assuming anything about a person’s gender or sexuality. Here is a handy guide on how to be an ally to trans and gender non-conforming people: https://www.glaad.org/transgender/allies 

Why is this space necessary?

Queer bodies are often politicised and made a subject for public scrutiny and debate. It is unfortunate that even within the yoga community many people feel that there are unrealistic and unnecessary expectations placed on their bodies. Loving our bodies is an act of rebellion especially within the queer community and this is why it is important to have a queer lead space, where everyone can feel relaxed and at home in themselves.
