Yoga ART (Adaptive-Restorative-Therapeutic) Program
Location: Greater Vancouver Area
Type of Sport or Recreation: Yoga Adapted

What is Adaptive Yoga?  Who can benefit from Adaptive Yoga?  What is yoga & why does it work? The tools of yoga can benefit Every-Body. We aim to accomplish three things minimally: Train lay people and health care providers, yoga teachers and caregivers to utilize the basic tools of yoga to improve the health and well-being of those they care for. To empower individuals to find their own ways to heal, using the body as a resource. To help people feel safe, hope-full and free.  Mary-Jo Fetterly and Trinity yoga have been teaching and doing yoga for over 30 years, in the last 10 years Mary-Jo had a SCI injury where her knowledge of yoga and her experience have combined to develop the adaptive yoga program called ART-Adaptive-Restorative-Therapeutic. 

You can find Mary-Jo’s classes around town by going to www.Trinityyoga.net or www.Mary-Jo.com.
