Accessible Yoga

January 9, 2017
The Accessible Yoga movement is introducing yoga to older adults and others not normally included in this largely young, white, middle-class movement: people with disabilities, ethnic minorities, those with different body types, and underserved communities.
Aging With Dignity travels to the Accessible Yoga Conference in Santa Barbara for its first video report.

    Absolutely love this video and its empowering message. As an overweight muddle aged woman I have never taken a public yoga class even though I truly enjoy doing yoga at home. I hope this video reaches many who need to hear this message.

    Loved this video!! I had a major stroke about 6 years ago and did the traditional pt and ot through hospitals but in the past year have found yoga to make more of a difference in 1 year than in 6!!! But the yoga community has always been intimidating to me for these very reasons. I’m in Virginia and am taking a teacher training to be able to teach classes to anyone with a disability. I wish I was in cAlifornia but can someone help me get more info on The east coast here??
