Accessible Fitness, more choices for more people

Fitness has always been a concern with regard to both mental and physical health regardless of age, gender, or any other variables that make each one of us unique. And for those in the blind community, fitness is every bit as much—if not more—important.

Exercise for the visually impaired is something that should be incorporated into a weekly, if not daily, routine for a variety of reasons that are both similar and different from people within the sighted community. For those with total loss of sight as well as for those who are low sighted, a lack of regular exercise can bring on a host of other issues, including weight gain, sluggishness, and perhaps worst of all for many, insomnia or a circadian rhythm that has been thrown completely off track.

A quality workout done at the right time of day and at the right pace to meet your unique physical and mental needs is just what the doctor may have forgotten to order. For many blind people, fitness has been a challenge: without someone to guide you and without the ability to drive yourself to the gym, it becomes obvious why so many visually impaired individuals give up—but with the BlindAlive line of Fitness Workouts for blind people, you’ll never have to depend on anyone else again.

Yoga and Strength Training with wieghts for blind people along with a variety of other cardiovascular exercises help our bodies stay toned, help us gain muscle mass and lose weight, but most of all, can help lead a blind person away from a sense of helplessness.

Are you ready to sweat? Come get healthy and leave all your notions of not being able to get fit due to your visual impairment behind with BlindAlive!

Welcome to our Yoga Programs

Yoga is amazing! Even if you only spend one hour a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. If you can do more than that, you will certainly experience more results. Yoga involves stretching and core strength exercises and actively engages the breath. You do not have to be flexible to practice yoga.

I just purchased Slow Flow Yoga. Once again, you did a great job. I have practiced Yoga in the past, but this is the first time I have understood the breath flow in the sun salutation. The music was great.

In our Yoga selection, we offer three programs: Chair Yoga, Slow Flow Yoga and Gentle Yoga.

Chair Yoga

For chair yoga, a simple chair with no arm rests is perfectly suited. For the Slow Flow Yoga Program and Gentle Yoga Program, you can use an exercise or yoga mat for comfort and safety.

The first one is our Chair Yoga Program. It is the perfect introduction to yoga, easing you into a complete workout without needing to lie on the floor. All the poses are either in or supported by a chair.

Slow Flow Yoga

The second program is our Slow Flow Yoga Program. It is designed around the sun salutation’s series of poses. Sun salutations calm the mind and strengthen the body. You will feel accomplished and relaxed with this flowing routine.

Gentle Yoga

Our third is Gentle Yoga. This program happens exclusively on the exercise or yoga mat. There are no standing poses in this sequence and so there are ample options to modify to suit the individual practitioner.

Here you can listen to samples from the Yoga Program workouts. When you are done, you can continue reading to purchase the yoga bundle, individual programs, or return to the program page.

We recommend that you invest in our Yoga Bundle, that includes three programs: Chair Yoga, Slow Flow Yoga and the Gentle Yoga Program for only $47.99, and save $12 over purchasing the programs individually. The bundle will give you variety and the opportunity to grow and progress through the different routines, and is a great investment in yourself with an even greater return. All programs come with bonus material that includes modification and adjustment options and detailed step-by-step descriptions of each movement in the routine, all sent to you as audio and text files.
