Description

Vision impaired yoga is held at Vision Australia’s head office in Kooyong.  It includes periods of stillness, where the mind has an opportunity to become quiet; traditional poses linked into a flow; followed by some slow stretches.

The benefits of yoga go beyond optimising movement in the major joints to using the breath and other ‘tools’ to escape the busy mind chatter - and perhaps experience life a little more easefully. For students who are vision impaired, yoga encourages them to focus on the sensations of their body and limbs in space, as well as the development of core strength and balance.
