Yoga for All: Virtual and In-Person Classes for Those with Vision Loss

Virtual yoga classes specifically designed for people who have low vision or are blind are offered by Blue Awning Yoga, in conjunction with Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh (BVRS). Classes, which are taught by an instructor who is visually impaired, highlight the other senses and focus on verbal cues to help students participate actively in each session. Gentle movement and “flowing postures” are among the features of the program, aimed at enhancing balance and mindfulness. Other classes are offered as well, concentrating on such areas as gentle flow, power, raja, and seniors/chair yoga. Each live and interactive virtual session is available for a fee of $5; for residents of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, the fee is waived. The program is offered every day of the week at convenient times for individuals across the United States. To learn more or to sign up, visit the website for Blue Awning Yoga and Wellness.
