Release of physical stress and tension, structural body-integration, strengthening, and energetic expansion are not only for the super-athletic and able-bodied. This group exists to support, instruct and serve individuals who are:

  • living with physical disability,
  • in various stages of health or dis-ease, or
  • recovering from illness, injury or physical trauma. 

My own experiences with chronic illness and the benefits of yoga practice inspired me to become a yoga teacher, certify in Adaptive Yoga with a well-known U.S. paraplegic yoga teacher, and to offer this practice to others free of charge.

Yoga IS for ALL Bodies!

Adaptive Yoga brings anyone to confident practice of yoga by supporting students to find and work confidently at their optimal level of performance given their current body situation.  Adaptive Yoga is about the experience of the pose, not it's appearance.  Slowly paced, Adaptive Yoga practice pays exact attention to alignment and proper action, helping every student to connect with the experience of the pose and maximize their body's potential for strengthening and healing.

You get to start with who you really are and feel how you really feel.

From that place, Adaptive Yoga teaches us that anything is possible.

Adaptive Yoga is particularly inviting to individuals recovering from illness or injury, experiencing chronic illness or degenerative disease, or who have significant permanent disability including amputation, paraplegia or quadriplegia.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
