The ROUSETTUS® Visually Impaired Yoga Mat
Our mat enables blind, limited-sight, and physically challenged users to practice yoga safely and confidently.
The VIYM is designed in three dimensions,
with tactile raised and depressed features called ''stations'' strategically placed to
help the challenged yoga student feel where his or her hands, feet, and head should be placed for all 24 basic yoga postures.
These intuitive tactile feedback features also help students to feel their location and direction on the mat,
helping students obtain crucial body alignment during a yoga posture sequence.
Prior to the Yoga Mat for the Visually Impaired, yoga students faced discouraging challenges. They often had trouble detecting the location of their body and the direction on the mat in which they were facing. Balancing in yoga postures was awkward: without any visual clues, students had a difficult time sensing and reaching ideal body alignment.
The Yoga Mat for the Visually Impaired can be used by young people and adults alike in physical education classes, rehabilitation facilities, community centers, and at home or in a yoga studio. Thicker than a traditional mat, the Yoga Mat for the Visually Impaired comes with its own handy carrying strap and can be rolled or loosely folded for easy transport to school or studio. It is easily stored at home. Designed for a person of average size (5' 3" or taller), the Yoga Mat for the Visually Impaired easily accommodates individuals who are shorter or taller who need only to adjust their stride for a comfortable fit.
