These gentle chair-based sessions will focus on breath awareness and the benefits of breath led movement. Relaxing and restorative, they will use flowing movements to help melt away tension in the body and mind.

The sessions aim to create space for the breath and prana to flow - bringing to each practitioner a sense of holistic movement, conscious breathing, plus body and energy awareness. Suitable for all, but specifically tailored for people with balance issues or simply prefer this gentler practice, these sessions will take place in the ground floor gallery (please note, sessions will not be available during weeks when the gallery is being rehung for a new exhibition).

Tutor: Julie Hand. With a background in fitness and dance and a Reiki II practitioner, Julie’s focus is on the therapeutic aspects of conscious movement and breath to promote health, well-being and peace of mind. Qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga and teaching since 2003, she has since spent time studying the principles of Tibetan Yoga and works to incorporate the philosophy of Kum Nye Tibetan Healing Movement into the practice. Julie has focussed her yoga sharing on breath awareness and using it as a tool for improved well-being, relaxation and calming of the nervous system – often working on a one-to-one basis with people suffering with stress and its associated symptoms. Julie’s teaching style is breath-led, incorporating flow and rhythm, to impart a sense of ‘Being’ in one’s body. Finding her way to the Parkinson’s Dance Science Model in 2016 was a complete joy.
