Marlow woman aims to help disabled with yoga
A FORM of yoga for people with limited mobility or disabilities is being pioneered in Britain by a Marlow woman.
Frederique Sardais, 44, is the first from the UK and the third from Europe to fly to the USA to be trained by Matthew Sanford, the creator of Adaptive Yoga.
She hopes to work with stroke patients in Marlow, saying she has spoken to an organisation in the area about doing this.
Ms Sardais wants to follow in the footsteps of Dr Guttmann, the creator of Paralympics, in helping people with disabilities.
Her aim is to aid those with partial paralysis or amputation, victims of spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
Ms Sardais claims pupils can gain greater strength and mobility, better management of chronic pain and reduce stress and anxiety.
The classical Hatha teacher said: “I got involved with yoga therapy and, after coming across students living with disabilities, I started wondering how I could work with them.”
