Group Support & Programs

INSIGHT hosts a wide variety of regular small group programs that bring together people who are living with vision loss to create opportunities for learning as well as the formation of lasting friendships. We currently have three distinct group programs:

Yoga Workshops

These free one hour workshops are held at INSIGHT every Wednesday from 10:30AM – 11:30AM. Everyone follows along at their own pace and comfort. This group is perfect for beginners as well as folks who have some Yoga experience. A Yoga mat is provided to each participant at no charge thanks to a grant from the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation.

Book Club

Our lively monthly book discussion group meets at INSIGHT on the third Friday of every month from 10AM – 12PM. The book to be discussed each month is chosen in advance by the members of the group and all of the chosen titles are available for free through the NLS Talking Books program.

Support Groups

INSIGHT staff facilitate several local monthly support groups that often feature presentations from staff members and guest speakers. The groups also provide people in the same geographic area with the opportunity to come together and offer peer support to each other as. A current list of active community support groups are listed below. Please note that the community support groups do not meet in July and August.
