What is Accessible Yoga?
Accessible Yoga is yoga for all! It is yoga for individuals with injuries, pains, people who think that there is no way they could ever do yoga. It’s such an easy concept that seems so complex to today’s population, yet comes as second nature to me.
Having had to struggle through finding my own body again, my insight to many issues and accessibility options are very conditioned. Yoga IS for people with cerebral palsy, lupus, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, those in wheelchairs, the elderly, and the list goes on and on.
Accessible yoga is meeting your body where it is at on the mat today. In an accessible yoga class there can be individuals ranging in abilities all doing the same poses at once! It’s about connecting to body and self.
Yoga is for all, and if you can breathe you can do yoga!
Is accessible yoga something new?
Not really actually. Just now our movement has begun to be called the Accessible Yoga Movement, or yoga for all. We are a network of individuals working to make yoga accessible for every body and mind despite age, race, disability, sexual orientation, etc. Everyone with every ability can do yoga if you believe in yourself.
