The Yoga Foundation
Cerebral Palsy Project
LoveEarth mats provide per-loved yoga mats for yoga classes provided by The Yoga Foundation for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA), which introduce yoga programs for their clients and carers. Yoga has many potential benefits for people with Cerebral Palsy, including:
- Enhancing physical and mental wellbeing
- Facilitating greater independence and boosting self esteem
- Stress management, and
- Providing an opportunity to connect with others.
Despite the myriad of benefits yoga holds for people with Cerebral Palsy, their access to yoga tends to be limited because “mainstream” yoga offerings usually don’t address their unique needs.
The Yoga Foundation through the CPA has developed a yoga program for people affected by Cerebral Palsy. There are three streams of the programme, a high needs class, a low needs class and a class for carers.
