With current Government advice recommending against non-essential contact and all unnecessary travel, British Blind Sport is joining with Sport England and encouraging our VI service users to #StayInWorkOut. We've teamed up with local deliverers and VI friendly activity providers to bring you a variety of at-home workouts and routines to keep you healthy and active from the comfort of your front room!
Sometimes, you need something a bit more gentle to start off or end the day - and that's where this page will come in handy! Whether you've ran the day before and need a good stretch out or you want to gain some peace of mind and relaxaton with a gentle Yoga flow, we've got what you need!
Or if you fancy a bit of strength work which involves less dumbells and more holds and postures, try some Pilates or Vinyasa yoga - we can't promise either of these fall in to the "gentle" category though.
This page is still under construction and will be updated as we gather more content together, but give our current routines a try and let us know how you get on!
Try Gentle Yoga for Beginners video below; a great and relaxing way to ease yourself in to some activity and stretch out those muscles!
You can also download the audio file with transcript here: Gentle-Yoga-for-Beginners
The audio downloads include the audio description for the workout itself, the audio description for each individual exercise or movement and the transcript of the workout for anyone who would prefer to read the instructions.
This workout routine was kindly shared with us by Blind Alive, for the full series of workouts please visit https://www.blindalive.com
We hope you enjoy these accessible workouts and continue to stay active and healthy whilst at home. Whilst we are happy and excited to bring you new activities via virtual delivery, we are a charitable organisation and would appreciate any donations you can make to allow us to keep providing this content for free.
