What is Adaptive Yoga?

Adaptive yoga is a class where all yoga postures and movements are adapted to give your unique body the experience of the posture no matter your ability or confidence. We use chairs and props and there is no need to be able to get up and down from the floor.
The classes include physical movement for those who can, breathing exercises and guided relaxation.
Every body has a different shape, different abilities and different conditions. Adaptive yoga makes it possible for anyone to practice yoga, including people with injuries, disabilities, mobility issues due to any reason (including but not limited to degeneration, paralysis, amputation, spinal injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, or cerebral palsy).
You can do it sitting in a chair or your own wheelchair, or you can use the chair to assist you in standing postures and movements.
It is not only for people with physical disabilities, if you have a mental health condition, or you would just prefer the security of having support from props and a slower pace, adaptive yoga might be ideal for you.
At our in-person classes, all venues are wheelchair accessible.
