Active Ostomates: at home – Chair Yoga

A series of chair yoga videos presented by Lisa Middleton.

We’ve been hosting chair yoga through stoma support groups since 2016 and it’s our most popular ‘Active Ostomates’ activity. In 2019 we delivered fifty six sessions throughout the UK to nearly 1200 participants so we’re delighted to be able to offer virtual sessions at this time when community activity is not possible.

We’ll be releasing a new video every Tuesday for the next four weeks. Each video will cover exercises for a different part of your body and together they make up a great week of activity that you can practice on a regular basis.

26th May – Neck & Shoulders
2nd June – Hips, Legs & Feet
9th June  – Side body & Twists
