How this Course Benefits You
You will develop an understanding of how to use yoga and mindfulness therapeutically in bringing the physical and emotional body into balance (and by supporting emotional regulation, motor planning skills and coordination).
Your understanding will be developed of how yoga and mindfulness can be used to restore health and wellbeing, improve digestion, enhance metabolism and elimination, in addition to enhancing immune function.
You will understand the use of yoga as a daily ‘sensory diet’.
Your ability to plan and sequence for one-to-one and group yoga classes will strengthen.
You will adapt the practice for the differential in the autistic spectrum.
You will develop the tools to enable an effective delivery of Special Yoga methodology to enhance the potential of the child.

Teaching Style
You will be guided through highly effective and accessible strategies for integrating our remedial advantages of Special Yoga methodology into the lives of children with autism and ADHD. With these skills you will have the ability to tailor various settings to the specific needs of the child or group you support.

Topics Covered
Please note the topics covered are provided as a guide on what to expect throughout the experience. Our course will provide you with solid building blocks to boost the confidence you have in connecting with young people with autism spectrum conditions and ADD/ADHD. You will discover the capacity to use a range of practical strategies in settings that are specific to both individuals and groups of people.

■ Topic 1 – Introducing the Special Yoga Practice
You will be provided with a background to the evolution of our practice and possibilities of Special Yoga. Whether you are a parent, teacher or therapist, we will provide you with our personal and practical knowledge to enter various situations ready to bring the best out of the child.

■ Topic 2 – Practitioner & Child
You will be guided through how to develop relationships with children and their carers. A positive intention will be established from the outset, and you will understand how to celebrate the child’s strengths to support them in embracing their potential.

■ Topic 3 – Sound and Breathing Techniques
You will develop an understanding of how to use sound and chanting to get the attention of the child, help their breathing and self-regulation, and assist in coordination and motor planning.

■ Topic 4 – Specific Special Needs (Includes live demonstrations)
You will gain a comprehensive range of practical and personal tools that are relevant to addressing the energy levels and sense of balance from an emotional physical perspective within the child. A series of case studies and live sessions will provide you with a deeper insight into how the core principles can be practically applied.

■ Topic 5 – Creating a Class
You will learn how to pose questions, challenge behaviours holistically and become aware of a child’s range of abilities to help tailor your practice accordingly in both one-to-one sessions and group settings.
Sessions will take place on a 9:30 – 17:30 schedule.
