Read the Winnipeg Free Press about our Adapted Yoga- Sit, Stand, or Wheel program
"The importance of being active is so strongly stressed nowadays and being a member of the “senior community”, it can sometimes be intimidating when starting a new exercise program. The Adapted Yoga- Sit, Stand or Wheel video is something I have been able to incorporate into my daily living. I suffer from moderate to severe arthritis in my knees, hips and back, as well as having a history of asthma and past cardiac surgery on my mitral valve. I found this program to work with me and my range of flexibility without the pressure of wondering if this was going to be something I would be able to keep up with as the program progressed. With encouragement from the instructor, and the adaptations made for my body, I was surprised to see how much I improved week to week and how I could easily find time to fit in these stretching exercises at home."

"I like the Adapted Yoga, Sit, Stand, or Wheel yoga program because it adapts to my daily needs. With Fibromyalgia I never know how my body pain will be from day to day. With the flexibility to sit or stand I can still do some yoga and feel the benefits no matter how I feel."
