Activities:

Accomplishments
We aim to accomplish three things minimally: Train lay people and health care providers, yoga teachers and caregivers to utilize the basic tools of yoga to improve the health and well-being of those they care for. To empower individuals to find their own ways to heal, using the body as a resource. To help people feel safe, hope-full and free.
This will be a hands-on experience. No matter what walk of life or purpose you bring to this course you will discover a whole new world of different ability – yours, and the people which whom you may serve. Through a dynamic and hands-on learning environment we will experience and grow to understand Adaptive Yoga and the differently able populations it can serve. Students will be given the opportunity to practice and work with each other, and experience firsthand what it might be like to do yoga in a wheelchair, in bed, without a limb or without a particular physical or cognitive ability.
