Peloton seated adaptive strength collection

The program is not the only one available. A new collection is available for caregivers. “Caregivers spotlight” currently includes 28 classes in yoga, strength, meditation, cardio and stretching. According to the official description of the collection:

With caregivers in mind, this collection was curated by Peloton as well as the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. This collection includes classes that will help caregivers build and maintain the mental and physical strength they need to be successful in their role.

This collection was released by Peloton in celebration of National Family Caregivers Month (November). According to the press release

These classes were handpicked from Peloton’s content library to support caregivers’ emotional, mental and physical health. They can be used for self-care or to assist with the sometimes strenuous work of caregiving, such as wheelchair transfers. This collection includes breathwork, upper and lower body stretches, strength warm-ups, and healthy back yoga flows.

Logan and foundation members will participate in a virtual panel discussion at the end of this month. Logan will also be celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities (December 3rd) with an “in class moment”. This day also marks Logan’s first year anniversary with Peloton.
