The Community School is a
day school located at 75 Abington Street in Hingham, serving
students ages 3-21 with severe, multiple disabilities, many of
whom have complex medical needs.
Community School Yoga, Zumba & Ballet
is a 5000-year-old holistic practice with a myriad of
benefits. "It's purpose is to help each one of us achieve
our highest potential and to experience enduring health and
happiness" (from YOGA for the SPECIAL CHILD by Sonia Sumar).
Structurally, a consistent practice can help align the
vertebrae, improve muscle tone and strength, range of
motion, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Yoga
stimulates the cerebral areas by irrigating brain cells with
fresh blood, fortifies the heart and lungs, and improves
breathing patterns. At the same time, internal organs are
toned, the epidermal, digestive, lymphatic cardiovascular
and pulmonary systems are purified of toxins and waste
matter. Overall, Yoga helps to provide balance to our mind,
body, and spirit. Namaste!
