Overview

Connect the mind, body, and spirit, then grab a hot drink, and have a chat!
Adaptive Yoga LIVE is an award-winning volunteer service - founded by two disabled women who experienced the tremendous mental and physical health benefits of adaptive yoga.
These are difficult times for disabled people and we believe yoga can help unite us, in a shared experience, to reduce stress and improve wellbeing.
Traditional yoga poses are adapted (using chairs and props) so that they can be experienced by everyone - regardless of their level of ability. The emphasis is on the experience within the pose.
“We don’t use our body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into our body”
You will learn to use the body to calm the mind.
Yoga is unlike any other exercise as it produces a change in calm, and relaxation, that takes place on a neurobiological level. It shifts you, biochemically, from a state of excitement and tension to a state of calm, deep rest, and relaxation.
Only deep breathing that accompanies mind-body practices like yoga can do this.
We'll warm up the body with 20 minutes of gentle movement, breathing exercises, and a few minutes of meditation.
Remember, this is a judgment-free zone! Yoga is about listening to your body, not challenging it , so do what YOU can do.
At the end we'll grab a hot drink and have a chat!
Start your yoga journey with experienced adaptive yoga teachers and meet new friends online.
