Live High-Contrast and Audio-Described Virtual Workouts Offered at No Cost

Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) leads virtual workouts online Monday through Friday free of charge via the Zoom platform. All workouts are high contrast and audio described. These workouts, which include such offerings as Core Stability, Dance Aerobics, Cardio, and Yoga, were highlighted in a previous issue of this Bulletin. A new workout, Deep Stretch, has been added on Tuesdays at 9 am Pacific Time (12 noon Eastern Time). This session aims at helping participants increase their flexibility by flowing through relaxing dynamic and static stretches designed to broaden the range of motion. NWABA reports that these offerings provide their community of athletes a good workout while connecting with each other. They invite new participants to join from the comfort of home and connect with people across the country. The space needed for each workout is the length of a yoga mat.
