Working closely with our group facilitator, this role will complement and support the delivery of our weekly Yoga group by signing in participants, assisting them where necessary and being available to support the facilitator should one of the group need extra support.  Based at a local community facility, this will be a relaxed, gentle role for someone seeking a regular opportunity once a week.  It will suit someone with an interest in Yoga, with good people skills, common sense and the ability to get alongside others, whilst seeking a more medium to long term involvement.  The volunteer role also includes a small amount of time either side of the session to set up, pack away materials and debrief. Some clients may have communication and confidence difficulties due to a number of health-related issues.
