“I am currently a graduate student and am studying to become an occupational therapist. I attended the Chair Yoga Class at the Adaptive Recreational Center as part of a school project and was moved by Guruatma’s story. The fact that she was once in the position of several of her students and took advantage of the aquatic classes and yoga classes at the center for her own recovery provides her student’s with hope, motivation, and the inspiration to be active participants of their own recovery.
The class not only acts as a tool for gaining physical strength, but it also promotes an individuals overall health and well-being. It was apparent that many of the students were regulars and found the class to be a meaningful occupation and enjoyed the social and interactive aspects of the class as well. I would love to attend another class and really enjoyed watching the way the students lit up as they entered the class.”
