Founded in 2008 in Santa Cruz, California this program grew out of the need to make yoga available for those with mobility challenges. Our current student population includes those living with spinal fusion, paraplegia, quadriplegia others live with post polio syndrome, cerebral palsy, fibromyalgia, hip or knee replacements, cancer, traumatic brain injury, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. In AYP we explore how Yoga awakens within us the wisdom to meet the needs for transformation on any level. In every class we spend time developing breath awareness, practicing gentle yoga postures for strength, balance and flexibility and utilizing restorative postures for stress reduction. Students who have some yoga experience as well as those new to Yoga are welcome to attend our safe and accessible Adaptive Yoga Classes.
