Rebecca Roman spends once a week teaching yoga to a sizable group of disabled women ages eighteen to sixty. Rebecca modifies the yoga practice by offering chairs, the wall, and the floor for support making yoga accessible and safe for these women.
The women participating not only receive the physical benefits of yoga, but also the mental and emotional. The ENHANCE yoga classes empower students through the discovery that they could move in ways they thought would otherwise be impossible due to their disabilities.
They have learned new ways of connecting with one another and with themselves, building their confidence and self image. The women have also learned to communicate and cope with conflict. The ENHANCE yoga program has created a safe, fun, and nurturing community for these women. Rebecca loves teaching them!
