Special needs? Perhaps, but we prefer to call them children with special intentions!
Participants will learn how to effectively integrate yoga into home and school life, including therapeutic treatment for children with learning and developmental differences such as ADD/ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorders, etc. Social-emotional, physiological, cognitive and sensory-motor benefits will be addressed. Through lecture, videotape and experiential labs, participants will learn how to apply:
- Breath: to enhance self-regulation, modulation and organization, as well as supporting respiration for language
- Movement: to improve motor planning, balance, coordination, strength and flexibility
- Meditation and Relaxation: to decrease stress and promote stillness of the mind for increased attention and ability to focus
Taught by Shakta Khalsa, ERYT-500, Founder of Radiant Child Yoga, and Sarah Gigante, PT, DPT, RYT-200. With contributions from other professional RCY trainers.
“As a pediatric physical therapist attending The Radiant Child Yoga for Differently-Abled Children, I brought home a plethora of clinical applications, ideas, techniques and games to put use with my patients. The two instructors complimented one another beautifully with all their clinical knowledge along with their yoga and meditative expertise. I loved the use of music and movement as a yoga treatment option. I highly recommend this class for health care clinicians, along with educators, parents, and yoga instructors looking to integrate the special needs population in their classes.”
