REGULATE COMMUNITY YOGA CLASSES LAND IN EXETER
Thanks to the support of the Exeter Chiefs Foundation across the 2022/2023 season we are able to launch REGULATE, which is our community initiative to run classes fully funded for Front Line Workers. Our first sessions launch in Exeter at ParkLife Heavitree.
What is it and who is it for?
A free weekly class for Front Line Workers. Yoga for the Front Line (YFL) is host to these funded, job specific, inclusive classes, targeting the lived experience of stress for Front Line Workers.
These sessions introduce you to the movement of yoga and listening to your body so that you can manage:
How you recognise stress and tension in your body.
How you manage stress and tension in the body...
How you build resilience to the effects of stress to strengthen the body and the mind.
These tools can support you to listen and connect so that you can find space to breathe and let go of tension before it accumulates in ways that can be detrimental to your health and wellbeing.
We provide practical and effective tools you can take away that quickly release stress in the body, and that support you in your every day life.
On booking you will be asked to confirm your occupation and organisation. This is only used to ensure the spaces provided are covered by our funding. The definition of a Front Line Worker for these classes (public facing); those working response and the control room in Blue Light organisations, Response Staff in Voluntary organisations, NHS Workers, Military personnel, Teachers and those working in Adult or Child Social Care. If you are unsure please get in touch via the website. We hope to expand this as our classes grow.
Movement is anatomy focused, is functional and not aesthetic and designed to allow you gain a deeper awareness of how stress operates in your body and how you can work with it. We have developed the sessions using CSV Yoga, Yin Yoga, Myofascial Release, core breath work techniques and meditation.
