Yoga Classes Therapy for Children with Exceptional Needs

The Yoga therapy approach is recommended for children with: Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Microcephaly, Learning Disabilities, Developmental Delays, AD/HD, and other disabilities.

Yoga is particularly helpful for children with special needs, as the relaxation and meditation practices help children to focus, decreases hyperactivity and impulsivity. It also improves physical strength and awareness as well as academic achievement, increases attention span, memory, and improves communications and interpersonal relationships.
