Chennai centre promotes yoga for persons with disabilities
June 21, 2016
A yoga centre in Chennai is trying to promote the practice of yoga among people with disabilities and learning disorders.
Called The Practice Room, the center, in association with One Step at a Time, an organisation working with people with disabilities, has started classes specifically for persons with physical disabilities which will later be integrated with classes for everyone.
The poses are modified for people who don't have a leg or an arm. Like Tadasana, the mountain pose that is done standing is done seated on a chair with the focus on building strength in the bones that are used while sitting. The asanas focus on building strength.
