Yoga for Children with Special Needs

Yoga for Children with Special Needs

Special children often have gifts of perception and qualities that radiate. They change the lives of those around them forever. We are less without them.
We need to protect them and their rights to be themselves.
We are trained to work with babies and children of all ages who may have the following labels:
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or traits
  • Profound Developmental Delays (PDD)
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Learning Difficulties
  • Motor planning issues
  • Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD) & Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD)
  • General developmental delays
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Other rare and degenerative conditions, severe limitations and complex needs.

Yoga is a gentle practice and can be used therapeutically to:

  • Build body awareness, motor planning and motor development
  • Support self regulation, motor planning and coordination
  • Improve digestion, metabolism & elimination
  • Enhance immune function
  • Provide a daily ‘sensory diet’

1-2-1 Yoga (daytimes)

We offer 1-2-1 yoga for children at Hawtonville Children’s Centre (which has wheelchair access and facilities) on Fridays in the daytime. We can also provide 1-2-1 classes in your home or, with their agreement, at your child’s school.
