Chair Yoga

Classes are from 11.30am to 12.30 in the Brockagh Resource Centre, Laragh.

Chair Yoga is suitable for those who find a regular yoga class too strenuous, are recovering from injury or illness or are generally less active and mobile.  Louise’s classes include physical poses (asana), breathing practices (pranayama) and relaxation and meditation.  There is some standing work which is optional and done next to the chair.

Notice from Wicklow Mountains National Park

National Parks and Wildlife Service Staff were on the ground and in the air today on fire patrol in the Wicklow Mountains National Park.

Fires, campfires and disposable barbecues can be extremely dangerous to our natural habitats. When used in woodland or in upland heath areas and placed directly on the ground, they can cause wildfires which pose significant damage to wildlife and the environment.

This weekend, a native oak was thoughtlessly damaged in Glendalough when a fire was lit against it. Please help us Protect Wildlife, do not light fires, use gas barbecues only.
