Airbnb on Thursday said it's launching more than 20 new online activities designed for people with accessibility needs, including seated yoga and audio-described cardio boxing. People can also take part in activities, events and classes designed to teach them more about accessibility, such as beginning sign language classes. The programs range from $9 to $40 per person, though at least one is free.
Airbnb's online "experiences" platform, which launched last month, lets you visit the world virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company's new activities arrive on Global Accessibility Awareness Day, which aims to promote accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities. Airbnb partnered with disability organizations and advocacy groups, including the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, the Royal Association for Deaf people and The Arc, to make activities more accessible.
Other available activities include a wheelchair workout, mindful meditation with horses and a cooking class with a deaf teacher.
