Through Sunnyfield Independence YogaAid have been working hard on a pilot yoga program. For a year now, 5 individuals with intellectual disabilities have been taking part in one on one yoga classes in a local studio, mixing with the community and experiencing extraordinary health and personal benefits. The yoga program will be rolled out to their 13 day centres across NSW. This project includes research elements – YogaAid has a dream to present evidence of yoga’s health benefits to government, and eventually persuade health funding to support preventative health as well curative approaches. This is the start.
