Whatever your disability each Yoga pose can be modified or adapted to meet your physical needs.
The Yoga poses can be performed while seated in a chair or wheelchair and may be practised with my assistance as needed.
Whether you are in a wheelchair or simply need to use a chair, yoga is an adaptable activity for people of all abilities.
The Benefits of Adapted Yoga
Deaf and blind people can also enjoy the benefits of yoga.
Specialist training in this field allows me to enable those with sensory impairment to practice simple yoga sequences safely, allowing time for explanation, demonstration and exploration. The student will receive pictorial instructional hand-outs of the yoga postures we practice, including the breathing cues and number of repetitions; as well as printed step-by-step instructions for the breathing practices and the meditations. This gives the student the 'tools' and opportunity to continue a home practice with confidence.
1 to 1 sessions are ideal for those with sensory impairment to enable the student to practice at a pace that is comfortable and appropriate for them.
Small group sessions could be arranged.
Sessions can be in person in the comfort of your own home, chosen venue in Somerset or via Skype or Zoom.
Please contact me for details and to discuss your requirements
