Staying fit during the new normal

Depending on where you live, the COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult or worrisome to get out and get that much needed exercise. Just watch TV for a few minutes and you will be inundated with apps and companies offering virtual options for getting fit in this crazy new normal we are living in.  The biggest downside to these virtual (and most in-person classes) is they aren’t geared toward those of us who are visually impaired.  I don’t know about you, but taking a yoga class and learning how to do all the poses correctly was a big challenge. I have found that having an instructor that is aware that it is difficult or impossible to see what the instructor is doing is the difference between being successful and frustrated. The Lighthouse for the Blind is offering some great virtual options for getting rid of those pandemic 15 pounds. 

To maintain a safe environment, the classes require pre-registration and are held over Zoom. Lighthouse is offering classes in Cardio, which happens every morning and a weekly yoga class. Lighthouse for the Blind also offer many other interesting virtual meetings on a variety of topics like technology, Orientation and Mobility (O&M) Virtual board game night and meditation. All you need to do is contact the instructor for the class and they can set you up. Here is a  link and some additional information:
