Yoga for individuals with autism
Private yoga sessions for kids and teens
Yoga is a great tool for kids and teens with autism and other developmental disabilities to boost mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. It is a wonderful way to foster a deeper connection to one's body, breath, and mind.
Practicing yoga can help with:
- focus and concentration
- coordination and balance
- flexibility and strength
- stress relief and relaxation
- motor skills
In addition to being a certified yoga teacher, I have a Master's Degree in Child Studies. My work has included working with kids, teens, and adults who have Autism and other developmental disabilities.
My work with this population includes:
- Aspiring Youth Summer Camp at Ryther in Seattle
(camp counselor and yoga instructor)
-The Academy for Precision Learning in Seattle
- Various school settings in New Hampshire, California and Washington
(instructional aide, assistant teacher, yoga instructor)
-Private settings for one-on-one yoga sessions
-Community day program setting with adults
Private yoga sessions are designed to fit the needs of the individual.
Classes can include: breathing exercises, mindfulness, yoga poses, games, dance, story, and play.
Class length and frequency can be flexible.
