What is the difference between regular yoga & yoga therapy? 

"How can my child with special needs do Yoga?" 

I'm asked this question so many times and the simple answer is that the Yoga adapts its approach to suit your child. It is my job to understand your children and develop a trusting relationship based on mutual respect and kindness. Only from this place can our Yoga journey begin. I've worked with children who have cerebral palsy, downs syndrome, autism, ADD/ADHD and rare genetic diseases. I've never come across a child who cannot do Yoga. 

Some of the benefits of yoga for children with special needs include:

  • Gross & Fine Motor Planning

  • Physical Development

  • Behavioural Self-Regulation

  • Neurological Development

Here is a short clip of how to practice yoga for someone who has quadreplegic Cerebral Palsy. For more information about working with people who have different abilities, please visit: hershayoga.com or catrinanderson.com
