Specialist yoga classes promote good health for those with disabilities

YogaMobility, based in Cardiff, provides specialist yoga practice to people with all forms of physical and mental disability. The charity aims to promote and protect wellbeing, assist in the treatment of disabled adults and educate the public through the practice of yoga.

YogaMobility was recently awarded £3,373 from People's Postcode Trust, a grant-giving organisation funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery. This funding will allow this fantastic organisation to run programmes for its volunteers, such as teacher assistant training and courses on first aid and manual people handling.

Mary Madhavi, Founder of YogaMobility, is looking forward to the New Year when these courses will get underway. "We are so happy that our volunteer training will start in January, we're all ready to go! Everyone at YogaMobility is very excited and grateful to players of People's Postcode Lottery for their support".

These training programmes will help to increases volunteers' confidence and abilities when working with over 90 disabled yoga students. It will also equip them with a greater awareness of a range of medical conditions and a better understanding of how these conditions affect a person's quality of life. Such transferrable skills will also have huge benefits for the volunteers themselves, enhancing their personal and professional development.
