Women with SCI Network Meeting - April 2018
For their April meeting, the Women with SCI Network group met at Span Community House. They were taken through a meditation and yoga session, shifting through some basic movements and breathing techniques. The session was accessible to all abilities, and easily adapted to each persons capacity; whether going though each physical pose or concentrating on envisioning the movement. Yoga and meditation can improve many aspects of a person’s health and wellbeing – including overall strength, increased flexibility and lung capacity, better sleep, feelings of connection and less stress, anxiety and tension.
Everyone left the session feeling relaxed and refreshed – they enjoyed it so much that they will particpate again later this year! The group was happy to be able to take some of what was learnt home to their everyday lives. Next month, the group will welcome a guest speaker who will present on and facilitate a discussion around Sexual Health, Relationships and Sexuality.
The Women with SCI Network group aims to create a comfortable, open and confidential space that encourages everyone to share ideas and experiences. Their vision is to connect and support women living with spinal cord injury so if this interested you please contact us via the below details.
