About the Event
During this weekend immersion, we will share an introduction to the therapeutic teachings of Special Yoga’s programme for children.
Our intention is to support all children with a therapeutic approach to yoga, with an additional focus on children with special and additional needs.
Children today are struggling with higher levels of anxiety and mental health issues than ever seen before.
Children with autism and learning challenges are at risk of exclusion from education due to what is perceived as unmanageable behaviours.
Our time together will give tools and support to understanding children’s behaviours as a form of communication and using yoga to support their nervous systems and hearts, to bring lifelong practices to enhance their well-being and work towards reaching their potential.

* Introduction to Special Yoga and how we work with children and families
