Adaptive Yoga NEW at the IMA this Fall!
Adaptive yoga classes are smaller than traditional classes, allowing for a more hands-on approach. Yoga poses are adapted for people with physical limitations due to a range of conditions (paralysis, amputation, MS, stroke, etc.) Classes incorporate breathing exercises and relaxation/meditation. Participants may practice in a sturdy chair (provided), thick mat (provided), wheelchair, or their own yoga mat. Offered on Thursdays, October 9-December 4 from 5:30-6:45 p.m. Instructor Julie Fournier is a registered yoga teacher who studies adaptive yoga under Matthew Sanford, and is part of Adaptive Yoga Northwest. Fee is $54.

Disability 101: Identity, Education, Leadership and Careers
15127 C 1 F 1130-1220 MGH 234
1 credit, CR/NC
This seminar, directed toward students with disabilities and others, introduces students to people and programs that value the experience and diversity that people with disabilities bring to UW campuses. Through seminar discussions, students can begin relationships with high-level leaders and advocates as they learn about disability-related leadership opportunities (e.g. student advocacy groups, student government, a campus cultural center), interesting campus units (e.g. the Disability Studies Program, the Access Technology Center, Disability Resources for Students, the International DO-IT Center), and exciting career fields that students with disabilities may be particularly interested in (e.g. political science, rehabilitation medicine, neural engineering, and others).
