“We will guide the participants in yoga poses depending on their individual physical and mental requirements. After the session, they will be able to practice the asanas on their own in daily life. This will be a first time experience for us to train people with visual impairments and we are hoping to learn from it as well”, says Meenal.
Regular yoga practice can improve breathing, flexibility, stamina, strength, relieve pain and create a feeling of overall wellbeing. In today’s fast paced life, it is not possible for everyone to take out time to de-stress or go for gym sessions.
I am eager to attend the yoga training session. I have started running recently and I am hoping to learn about breathing exercises and ways to improve my stamina. I think being healthy is important for everyone. For people with disabilities it is important to maintain stamina and flexibility to overcome barriers.
