Online training is a simple and comfortable practice. But not every existing programme is accessible for people with disabilities. For instance, people with visual impairments need additional comments to the training sessions, i.e. more detailed instructions about the techniques and routine.
This course is created to meet the needs of the visually impaired people and help them practice yoga from the comfort of their homes.
Our course is designed by Everland inclusive project with support from Beeline. It is created for visually impaired people who want to practice yoga. The course is put together by a professional yoga instructor with the help of visually impaired consultants.
– Two types of yoga routines – Hatha and Nidra Yoga;
– Detailed description of every movement;
– Involving visually impaired consultants;
– WhatsApp support chat.
