People living with disabilities who are looking to add some muscle-building, mood-boosting, and overall feel-good exercise to their day have lots of opportunities to do so in the Philadelphia area, writes Laura Brzyski for the Philadelphia Magazine.

There are 17 fitness studios and athletic organizations in the region that offer disability-friendly programs that help disabled and differently-abled folks get and stay active, motivated, and strong.

In Montgomery County, the place to go is Yoga Home in Conshohocken.

Owner Kerri Hanlon started adaptive yoga classes as a homage to her late son, Sean, who had cerebral palsy.

As part of these classes, yogis can do their exercises seated, standing, or lying on the floor. In each case, they use blocks, blankets, chairs, and the wall to assist them in adapting their position to their liking.

In addition, the studio offers gentle chair yoga, yoga for caregivers, and yoga for kids on the spectrum.

Other nearby studios or organizations that offer adaptive and assisted fitness and sports programs for people living with disabilities include All Riders Up in Garnet Valley and West Chester University in West Chester.
