Yoga classes for children, parents and carers return

Yoga and mindfulness classes for children, parents and carers living with autism in Bracknell, Slough and Windsor & Maidenhead are returning after a popular pilot scheme earlier this year.

The classes, which are free of charge, resume next week. New participants are welcome to join.

The classes are for children aged five to 17 who have a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition, including Asperger syndrome, or are on the waiting list for an assessment on the CAMHS ASD Pathway, and their parents and carers.

Those attending must also be resident in the boroughs of Bracknell and Slough or the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.

The classes are led by certified yoga teacher Katia Cornwall, who has been working with children and young people with autism for more than 10 years.

Deep relaxation sessions for adults living in Windsor & Maidenhead resume on Monday, May 23, from 9.30am to 10.30am, at the Apple Physiotherapy Studio, at 69 Osborne Road, Windsor.

Yoga mindfulness sessions for children in Windsor will be held at a new venue, Yoga for Harmony, at 143 Arthur Road. Due to availability of the venue, classes will be held here on both Mondays (5pm to 6pm) and Wednesdays (4pm to 5pm), starting on May 23 and 25.

In Bracknell, classes for adults resume on Tuesday, May 24, from 1.45pm to 2.45pm, at the Apple Physiotherapy Studio at the Royal Berkshire Squash and Racquets Club, in Nine Mile Ride, while yoga mindfulness sessions for children in Bracknell start on Thursday, June 9, at Jocks Lane Pavilion, in Jocks Lane, off Binfield Road, with two one-hour sessions from 4.30pm to 5.30pm and 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

Sessions in Slough for both age groups begin again on Friday, May 27, at the Copthorne Hotel Slough, in Cippenham Lane. Deep relaxation sessions for adults run from 1.45pm to 2.45pm, with two one-hour yoga mindfulness classes for children from 4.30pm to 5.30pm and 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
