We believe any body can and should practice yoga regardless of movement limitations.
Our 3b Adaptive Yoga class is geared toward participants who are unable to get up and down from the floor easily. We use chairs, a yoga wall with straps and bars and multiple blocks and bolsters. This class is geared towards participants with Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, acute injuries, chronic injuries that limit movement capabilities, paralysis, fibromyalgia and debilitating autoimmune conditions. Caregivers are encouraged to participate.
A typical class starts with controlled breath exercises, moves into joint-freeing movements, light strength training, gentle stretching and ends with resting. No special equipment is required however, comfortable clothing is suggested.
The practice of yoga has been shown to increase lung capacity, help with joint mobility, improve balance, improve steadiness of gait and has also been shown to fight depression.
Our Adaptive Yoga class is offered:
- $25 for 4 classes
- $50 for 8 classes
