Sense to launch free accessible yoga sessions for people with sight and hearing impairments in London

original article on sense.org.uk

Sense is set to launch a 10 week programme of free yoga sessions for people who have sight and hearing impairments and those with complex needs. A taster open-afternoon is to be held by the charity on the 22nd and 29th September at the Pancras Square Leisure Centre, London, for those interested in participating.

For more information or to book a place, those who wish to attend should get in touch with the Taylor Huxster at taylor.huxster@sense.org.uk or call 020 7014 9318 (Tues, Wed and Thurs).

Taylor Huxster, Regional Sports Coordinator at Sense said:

“We wanted to provide exercise tailored to the needs of people with sensory loss who often face many barriers to keeping active. Yoga is an accessible and safe form of exercise for people of all ages. It’s an effective way to build strength, flexibility and balance and it’s also great for relaxation and stress management. We hope that these sessions will help more people live active lives and enjoy the benefits of exercise.”

Parents, families and carers are welcome to attend the taster session which is taking place on September 22nd and 29th from 14.30 until 16.00 at the Pancras Square Leisure Centre, 5 Pancras Rd, London N1C 4AG.
