Disability Yoga – Check out these online classes for disabled people
It’s International Day of Yoga today! Everyone can do yoga. Yoga is beneficial for people with disabilities or chronic health conditions. Each pose can be modified or adapted to meet the needs of every disabled person. We bring you five online disability yoga classes on YouTube that are suited to people with a range of needs.
Just because a physical disability comes in the way of doing a certain pose does not mean you cannot do yoga. There are many schools of yoga and all of them cater to individuals with disabilities in some way or the other. Many yoga asanas or poses can be modified or adapted to suit people’s specific needs, Yoga can actually help physically disabled people immensely through meditation and stretching.
