Community Class -
With Bella Neergaard
Entering a yoga space for the first time can be extremely intimidating, especially for someone who is neurodiverse. Our aim with this community class is to provide a safe space for neurodiverse people who are curious to try yoga.
This beginners community class will focus especially on simple grounding poses and connecting breath and body, in order to cherish the moments of silence in our lives in a peaceful environment. The class will also feature a visual meditation and focus on breath work to calm a busy mind.
In this community class, we welcome all those who identify under the umbrella of neurodiversity, (for example: people on the Autism spectrum, those with ADHD/ADD, OCD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, those with sensory processing issues, Bipolar disorder, learning disables etc.) Please note: a clinical diagnosis is not needed to join! We welcome everyone who feels they can benefit from this class, if you’re in doubt, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
The teacher for this class is Bella, who has ADHD and is on the autism spectrum. If you have any questions about the set-up of the class, questions pertaining to accessibility, please don’t hesitate to contact her @bellaneergaard on Instagram or email email@example.com. She is so excited to hold this space for you.
This event is at an affordable rate and open for members & non-members.
ABOUT COMMUNITY CLASSES
We are offering dedicated time and space to traditionally marginalised communities to embark upon a yoga journey whether you are PoC, LGBTQ+, neuro-diverse or living with mental health issues. Fostering a sense of community within traditionally white, women-identifying, able-bodied spaces is not only powerful, but needed.
A lot of us have had that 'first yoga class experience' before, walking into a room where we feel awkward, unseen and uninvited. We acknowledge that some communities feel excluded in yoga and wellness spaces. This is something we are passionate about changing. We believe that it is important to invite traditionally marginalised communities to come experience the healing benefits of yoga.
Our teachers will hold non-judgemental and empowering spaces catered to the specific community we are hosting, whilst teaching the basics of a yoga class through and informed yet light-hearted and fun way. We will introduce you to the basics of yoga through physical postures, exploring movement, delving into meditation and playing with breath-work.
Let us give you space, so you can take up your own!
