OM FOR AUTISM YOGA

Our “Yoga for All Abilities” classes teaches yoga poses and breathing techniques specifically intended to help individuals contend with their escalating emotions. Since these people are visually oriented, our instructors add visual elements throughout the session to help keep attendees engaged. The instructors go though a dozen poses and then finish each session with reiki.

At times, our classes incorporate other experiences known to benefit those on the autism spectrum, such music and dance. Music engages the brain and promotes communication. Being able to dance about in contrast to the stationary poses of yoga and the addition of music complete what amounts to an amazing and fun intervention.
