At WheelPower we believe that lives can be transformed through sport and physical activity and during the Covid-1 pandemic we launched a series of Adaptive Yoga videos to encourage wheelchair users to enjoy exercise from the comfort of their homes.
Nina Boswell Brown (sittingfityoga.com) will be your instructor as she demonstrates, explains and guides you through a gentle warm up, before showing you how to complete the yoga poses in a safe and effective way. These videos last approximately 30 minutes, so make sure it’s nice and quiet for relaxation. Put on some comfortable clothing that allow for movement, find yourselves a small space within your home and away you go.
Online Adaptive Yoga Class with Fredee Sardais (yogifredee.com/adaptive-yoga)
“Adaptive yoga classes are for people living with mobility disabilities, such as but not limited to partial paralysis, amputation, spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, visual impairment. Classical yoga postures are adapted with the use of props and assistants to the needs of students living with a disability to provide the experience of the pose, whatever the level of the participant, and to deepen the body-mind awareness. Deepening the mind-body awareness can lead to a greater sense of freedom and ease in everyday activities for someone living with a disability.” – Fredee Sardaid (Adaptive Yoga Instructor)
