Children and youth will:
- Participate in yoga class taught by an instructor trained in adapted yoga for youth with special needs.
- Learn relaxation / self regulating techniques in a fun, supportive environment.
Low sensory yoga class moves at a slower pace with fewer (typically four) poses, yet still offers the same great benefits of any yoga class! Breathing exercises and chanting are practiced to help calm the body and mind and foster participants’ modes of communication with sound and repetition. Hands-on assistance from caregiver is offered and encouraged in partner poses which are included in every class.
