Move Through Yoga is a nonprofit founded on bringing accessible and inclusive adaptive yoga and mindfulness programming to individuals with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities.
MTY is dedicated to enhancing the health and well-being of individuals with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities by providing a highly effective, adaptive yoga program that results in greater inclusiveness, decreased stress and isolation, and enhanced social-emotional resilience and self-management skills.
MTY currently serves school-aged students and post-secondary young adults living with physical and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities through the schools and/or transition day programs with which MTY holds contracts. These student athletes come from diverse academic, athletic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds across the Denver metropolitan area.
MTY contracts have included middle and high schools in Denver, Jefferson, Arapahoe, Adams and Douglas Counties. Classes are held in the Special Education classroom, or in the (Adapted/Unified) Physical Education class. Our aim is to expand our reach as a resource for the disability community and the educational and care systems that support them.
Move Through Yoga In Action
Participation in MTY’s adapted regimen of adaptive exercise, grounded in yoga principles of breath and movement, has been shown to mitigate isolation, reduce stress, and foster inclusiveness among individuals with I/DD and other special needs.
