We are dedicated to adaptive and accessible yoga practice. Based in Chicago IL, we provide adaptive yoga classes, workshops and trainings to students and yoga teachers who would like to provide accessible yoga instruction to students of all abilities.
Adapting yoga postures allows people of all abilities to do yoga. It is not a “special” form yoga for people with disabilities. It is instead about respecting the needs of your body so that you can successfully do yoga without getting injured. Everyone’s body is different, thus everyone will have to adapt their yoga practice in some way. Adapting yoga does not have to be difficult and complicated, it can be as simple as doing your yoga practice seated on a chair or putting your hands on blocks or another object if they do not reach the floor.
