Therapeutic yoga (Yoga for the Special child®) is a unique yoga method that has changed and improved the life of countless children with special needs around the world. It consists of a comprehensive programme of yoga techniques designed to enhance natural development.

This style of yoga is gentle and therapeutic and yet very effective. A session includes a series of yoga poses to increase body awareness, flexibility, strength and control of gross and fine motor skills. The sessions are specifically designed in a way that can meet the individual requirements of children and young people with varying needs.

Benefits can include:

  • Improved blood circulation and brain oxygenation
  • Improved physical awareness and co-ordination
  • Better quality sleep
  • Relaxation of the nervous system
  • Lowering of anxiety levels.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you the yoga sessions. I was amazed at the progress. I've honestly never seen him so relaxed and feeling his muscles. I had a very happy and relaxed little guy for the rest of the afternoon no tears at all.


Parents must accompany their children to the sessions.
