Deep relaxation classes for parents and carers coming to Reading for first time

Deep relaxation classes for the parents and carers of autistic children, teenagers and adults will be available for the first time at our office in Reading from October.

Although we no longer receive grant funding for these classes, teacher Katia Cornwall, pictured, is continuing to offer them on a fee-paying basis.

We will be hosting a series of five classes in Reading this autumn.

The course will run on Thursday mornings, between 10.30am and 11.30am, on October 5, 12 and 19 and November 2 and 9 at our office, in Richfield Place, off Richfield Avenue.

The classes help participants to relax, reduce anxiety, increase self-esteem and focus and improve flexibility.

Classes are suitable for all abilities, involving lying on mats with a pillow and blanket (please bring your own) while being guided into relaxation.

Katia, who also leads our Windsor & Maidenhead Youth Group, is a certified Yoga, Yoga4autism and Deep Relaxation Yoga Nidra teacher.

She uses a variety of techniques in her classes, including breathing, body movements, mindfulness and visualisation.
