Adapted Physical Activity

apa

What’s it all about?

Providing health and well-being opportunities for People with Disabilities through fun, engaging adapted physical activity and accessible Yoga. There are many physical, emotional, psychological and social benefits for People with Disabilities participating fully in physical activity. From a functional point of view physical activity will help to improve gross and fine motor skills, balance, flexibility, strength, cardiovascular endurance, and weight loss. In addition to the many health benefits the pleasure and enjoyment that comes from movement and engaging with others can be sufficient reasons in themselves for participation.
