    About Teacher: Jamie Boder: Co- Founder

    I was diagnosed with AS in 2016 and I was drawn to dread and despair. I could barely walk and was fearful about my future. I went to a support group and met Geoff who introduced me to yoga. After the first session I woke up to the realisation that this could be a huge part of recovering my life. I practised consistently every single day and began to see huge changes. The day I met Geoff I had a vision that one day I wanted to share this practice with as many people as possible and 6 years later here we are. I am a qualified yoga teacher with experience of working with hundreds of people with AS both in a class and one to one setting. I always teach the people in front of me. I personalise each practice to suit people's abilities and experiences of AS.

    Jamie, 24, is a keen skateboarder which he is now able to enjoy again. He loves time with friends, family and being out in nature.

    Class Description: Perfect for those new to Yoga for AS and want to begin with a very gentle introduction in to Yoga for AS.

    About Teacher: Geoff Lindsay Co- Founder

    My first AS symptoms were when I was 24, in 1973. So I do truly know how you feel. I started regular yoga practice in 1990. It made me feel good but I didn't know why or how. I came to realise that this yoga practice was helping my AS. Meeting so many other people with AS in my local AS support group over several years, I realised that we had to develop yoga for the different presentations of AS dis/ability, with the main aim of relieving pain, stiffness and fatigue. Then I met Jamie Boder, who has AS and became a yoga teacher. Together we co-founded Yoga for AS. Now here we are in 2022, astonished. We have a worldwide community of >3000 people with AS, all wanting to develop safe regular practice of Yoga for AS. I teach yoga modified for AS and for the people with AS in my class. Above all I want people to enjoy their practice.

    Geoff is a Retired Registered Social Worker, married to Cathy for 46 years, two wonderful grown up children and their partners, and two wonderful grandchildren.
