MSS is seeking volunteers to teach/demonstrate any type of adapted fitness or chair yoga/guided meditation to adults with disabilities. The focus should be on breathing and stretching in the chair, and to assist our individuals with stretching, range of motion and relaxation. Sessions could also include some guided simple imagery to help our individuals focus on positive thoughts and awareness of the senses. Instructor does not need to be certified professionally, but should be able to adapt the class and movements to the needs of individuals with varying mobility abilities. Volunteer should be comfortable engaging with adults with disabilities. Must be able to pass a background check. Opportunities available at any of our 6 locations: Apple Valley, Eagan, St. Paul, Shoreview, Brooklyn Park, and Oakdale. Classes could meet any weekday M-F between 9:30-1pm, but will vary by location. One hour per week would be an ideal schedule.
