Yoga Classes for Adults with Special Needs & Disabilities at a Residential Care Home
Adults with special needs who live in care homes are forgotten members of society.
The main challenges facing adults with disabilities range from lack of employment opportunities all the way to isolation, low quality of life, low self-esteem and poor mental health. Adults particularly face a lack of services to enhance physical, social and emotional wellbeing. Adults who live in residential care homes are often forgotten by their families. When we have spoken to workers at these care homes, some had expressed that many residents haven’t had any visitors in months.
Yoga in a group class provides a wonderful social setting to help participants make friends and feel good. Our latest YAMA Foundation yoga and meditation program is set in Ho Man Tin at SAHK's residential care home for adults with special needs.
