Top 4 Yoga videos for Disabled people

This easy guide shares some of our favourite at-home Yoga videos so you can get moving and have fun wherever you are.

We reached out to our partners during the height of the Coronavirus restrictions. We began working with Sense and Durham University to find out how Disabled people have been staying active during the coronavirus pandemic. We used this to influence what resources would help people stay active at home.

We used the findings from our research to co-design accessible and inclusive pre-recorded videos using the experiences and feedback. You can find these videos on the Get Yourself Active YouTube.

You can learn more about the Active at the Home project on our projects page.

Alongside this, we have been finding new ways, online videos and resources to help us to keep doing the activities we love.

This guide lists our current favourite Yoga videos shared by our friends and partners. If you have a suggestion for a video or resource to add, please email

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines that originated in ancient India. There’s some evidence that regular yoga practice helps people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains (including lower back pain), depression and stress.

Yoga is a safe and effective way to increase strength, flexibility, and balance that can improve your physical and mental well-being. To begin, you don’t have to use a yoga mat. You could use something similar to lie on, a towel, or something soft. Please do make sure you have some water to hand.
