Ballarat SCI Regional Network Meeting – February 2019
For the February meeting, the Ballarat SCI Regional Network learned from Sal, a familiar face from the Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre, about the relaxing ways of wheelchair yoga at the North Ballarat Sports Club.
Everyone agreed it was a great relaxation introduction into wheelchair yoga. Sal outlined the four zones to address stretching, relaxation and strengthening our bodies. The hour session had the group all sitting straight (as much as possible) to improve balance. There was slow stretching of the muscles all the while maintaining breathing. One member is keen to adopt these new steps to see if his sleep improves.
In other news, after learning about Sailability last month, Ballarat Yacht Club has offered the group a regular sailing session for the next 6 weeks! It is exciting to have made a new connection! Everyone, including family and friends, are welcomed to join the program. Please contact Sue Simmonds, Sailability Coordinator, for more information. Email: [email protected] or phone 0418 427 366
