Welcome to Vision Australia Library’s Let’s Move video series
Welcome to Vision Australia Library’s Let’s Move video series.
Let’s get started!
This six-part series is about making fitness easy to understand for people who are blind or have low vision. Every move is audio described and taught by paediatric physios. At the end of the course we hope your child has built healthy habits to continue to enjoy exercise programs throughout life.
The videos form the basis for a library of accessible physical content for young people and to have a greater share in community and school exercise programs.
Special thanks to the State Library of Victoria for providing funding support for this project.
Find below the six videos of the series.
Importance of sleep
Yoga and pilates
Let’s discuss sleep. Why we need it, how we can fall asleep easier, and what to do when we can’t sleep. A relaxing yoga and pilates class will have you stretching and breathing as you listen to your body. A 5000-year-old practice that you can do today to help get lots of zzz’s every night.
Everyone experiences feelings. Kids have big feelings just like adults. Everyone gets frustrated, excited, nervous, sad, jealous, frightened, worried, angry and embarrassed at times. In this video we’ll learn how to identify feelings and activities we can do if we’re not feeling our best. We will do all this as we do some strength exercises. Strength is important because it improves your ability to do everyday activities.
