About Allihopa Yoga

Dear Community,

Allihopa Yoga is a project to offer Adaptive & Accessible Yoga classes for those who experienced trauma and disability.

As a man living with a spinal cord injury, I have found that practicing yoga and meditation has been incredibly beneficial for me.

It’s has been so beneficial that I have decided to study and become an Adaptive Yoga teacher, and thanks to that, I have seen firsthand how it can be beneficial for others too, especially for those living with a spinal cord injury or other disabilities.

Adaptive yoga is a way of making the practice of yoga more accessible to everyone, no matter their shape, mobility, weight, and energy level. This makes it perfect for people living with disabilities – even those of us in wheelchairs! Because so many variations of yoga exist, it’s easy to customize a routine to perfectly suit anyone, including people with physical limitations like paralysis, chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, and more.

Unfortunately, most people with disabilities live off benefits and can't afford to take part in a Yoga class, so this Patreon page aims to generate funds so I can offer free-of-charge classes for those in need.

My adaptive yoga classes are much more than a simple stretch and breath exercise, there is a sense of responsibility on making sure everyone is being heard and accommodated safely and compassionately.

Living with a disability is a very lonely experience, and sometimes just to have someone to talk with, someone who listens, someone who wears the same shoes, can make a huge difference in someone’s mental health, especially during the pandemic.

So apart from the all well-known physical and mental benefits that a yoga class can bring someone, in this case, the social part of it makes a massive difference as well. 

The sense of responsibility I have with my community, knowing that, it’s enormous and it will only grow from here.

With love, compassion, patience, kindness, and resilience.

All together. Allihopa.
