An adventurous heart and playful soul are the core elements of being a child. Having a disability should never preclude going on an adventure, but it may need to be adapted slightly in order to include your child’s wheelchair as well. For children, an important part of their learning and development is to play and bond with family and friends through exciting activities and quality time spent together.
Yoga is a spiritual and physical discipline celebrated for its positive influence over health, pain relief, and relaxation. Practicing yoga is beneficial for people of all abilities, body types, and fitness levels. It is credited for reducing aches and pains, and promoting general wellbeing and positive mental health.
Yoga is a very adaptable exercise, and can be easily practiced from a seated position or otherwise modified to your needs. Because of this, it is highly suitable for wheelchair users and other people with disabilities. There are numerous adapted yoga positions which can be incorporated into the physical therapy or exercise routines of people with disabilities.
