The experience of disability is often worsened by a lack of flexibility and mobility. The less mobile we become, the more withdrawn and socially isolated we can become. This leaves us less inclined to engage in the kinds of physical activity that would help us maintain our flexibility. So we can get into a vicious circle in which our disability worsens.
Yoga offers a gentle – but powerful – means of maintaining and improving flexibility and mobility. YogaMobility have adapted traditional yoga practice to make it accessible to people with disabilties.
