What Is Special Needs Yoga?
Yoga tailored for children with developmental delays or other learning differences. Through breathing exercises, yoga poses, chanting (repetitive sound), flowing sequences and a deep relaxation period, students are exposed to the powerful benefits of yoga. Students are guided through concrete directions and visuals. Yoga assists the ability to focus and concentrate and helps improve both fine and gross motor skills. It contributes to improved communication and building responsive and interactive relationships while reducing anxiety. Participants who benefit from additional support are welcome to participate with a parent/caregiver at no extra cost.
