Making Sense of Yoga by Sense!

Making Sense of Yoga resource - Sense

Making Sense of Yoga

In partnership with experienced yoga teachers, Sense deliver a range of yoga classes across the country, to people of all ages with sensory impairments and complex disabilities. This resource has been developed in collaboration with these yoga teachers, and participants who attend their classes regularly.

This resource is suitable for practicing yoga teachers who wish to make their classes more inclusive for participants with sensory impairments and complex disabilities. It also provides an ‘introduction to yoga’ for people who are interested in attending a class, but may not know how it will work for them or the person they’re supporting.
