Adaptive Yoga Program

Join our Adaptive Yoga Program today!

Hand Over Hand’s Adaptive Yoga Program makes yoga accessible to youth and adults with developmental disabilities. Using a holistic approach and creative techniques, our accredited yoga instructors will empower participants to develop and maintain a yoga practice that is attuned to their individual capabilities and needs.

Hand Over Hand’s Adaptive Yoga Program aims to create a safe space for all participants, where youth of all abilities can improve their physical and mental health, at their own pace. Each attendee is expected to bring their own yoga mat, towel, and water bottle. Attendees will receive an Adaptive Yoga booklet to track their progress throughout the session.

These sessions are brought to the public in partnership with the City of Markham and requires a fee to register. Currently, our Fall, Winter and Spring sessions for people with disabilities aged 15-55 take place at Aaniin Community Centre. Our Adaptive Yoga booklets were beautifully designed by Arwen Giel.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are running our Adaptive Yoga Program, Accessible Taekwondo and Social Group Program via Zoom!
