yoga for children with special needs

was designed to meet the challenges of those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), including individuals with Sensory Integration Disorder, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and other significant developmental 
and global delays.

yoga the best fit for your child?

Treatments for ASD and developmental/global delays come in all shapes and sizes, and as families well know, what works for one child doesn’t necessarily work for another. Choosing a therapy must be based on the child’s specific needs and the family’s emotional and fiscal comfort. An increasingly popular choice—is yoga. It doesn’t require expensive medications or time-consuming doctor’s visits. Each child begins with an assessment and then yoga individual instruction. He or she is guided through repetitive movements, physical postures, guided relaxation and added slowly, breathing exercises. The yoga that is used is gentle and safe. No special equipment is needed beyond cushions and a mat.
