Every Wednesday 11am to 12pm in the Activity Room at Jones Court, Womanby St, Cardiff.
The Chair Yoga class is one of our most popular groups. It gives you the chance to stretch safely and there is a wonderful relaxation session at the end. People often arrive early (or leave late!) in order to have a hot drink and a chat with other members. Numbers are limited so it is best to ring first to check whether there is space in the class.
“I find the atmosphere in Sight Life so pleasant and welcoming. Everyone is so helpful and very professional. I attend both the yoga class and the macular group. These classes have become two of my main social activities because I have met such nice people there. The yoga is improving both my emotional and mental well-being. I’m so grateful that it is making such a difference to my life.”

About Sight Life
Sight Life (formerly Cardiff Institute for the Blind) supports people who are blind or partially sighted in south Wales. In 2020/21 we helped more than 3,000 people in Cardiff, Swansea, RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf), Neath and Port Talbot.
We provide statutory services to people with sight loss on behalf of the local Councils in Cardiff and Swansea.
In cooperation with the NHS, we provide a support service (ECLO: Eye Clinic Liaison Officer) for patients newly diagnosed with sight loss in University Hospital of Wales (UHW “The Heath”) in Cardiff.
Our aims are to ensure that people with sight loss can take part in all aspects of society, including work and leisure.
We offer a range of training, clubs and activities including audio-described theatre trips, confidence building, cooking, drama, employment support, fitness, gardening, IT, music, photography, rambling and yoga to people with sight loss.
Established in 1865, we are one of Wales’ oldest charities. In spring 2022 we returned to being an independent charity after being part of the UK wide RNIB Group since 2009.
We have approximately a dozen staff and annual income in the region of £440,000 from statutory contracts, grants, trusts, The National Lottery, donations and legacies.
Sight Life changed its name from Cardiff Institute for the Blind in 2019 to reflect the fact that we work beyond Cardiff, including Swansea and RCT (Rhondda Cynon Taf). The name change also recognises the fact that we support people with any degree of sight loss, not only those who are blind.
