Yoga for children with Special Educational Needs

We welcome all children to our classes which we aim to keep accessible and inclusive. Sometimes, however, depending on the particular needs of your child, they may benefit from sessions which are specifically designed around their needs and abilities. We offer one-to-one sessions that can take place at your home or your child’s school. The special type of yoga that we teach is particularly beneficial for children with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Sensory Processing Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome or Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD).

Sessions work towards bringing the nervous and sensory systems into balance, helping children to connect deeply with their bodies, regulate their emotions and reach a place of peace and relaxation. Movements are adapted to the needs of your child and work towards building flexibility and strength in the body. Over time, this type of yoga can impact positively on energetic states and behaviour.
