yoga for special kids
Taught by Limor Landau Certified Instructor
Yoga for the Special Child ™, is aimed at infants and children with special needs, but is suited for anyone. It’s a wonderful opportunity for your child to experience a warmer more soulful approach to therapy.
While Yoga for the Special Child ™ recognizes the importance and necessity for conventional medical treatment, it also believes that special children possess special needs. Time away from doctors and hospitals are a welcome and refreshing treat for you and your child.
The Special Child Program
Yoga stimulates all the areas necessary for a child’s development. Yoga for the Special Child ™ is designed specifically to benefit children with Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Attention Deficit Disorder, Learning Disabilities and other developmental delays.
During the sessions children will learn a step-by-step, integrated system of yoga poses designed to increase cognitive and motor skills. A vital role in the program is that of parent as guide, inspiration and role model. The benefit to your child of seeing you enjoy your yoga practice cannot be emphasized enough.
