Yoga Support for Special Kids with Melody
Yoga Support for Special Kids
Do you know a special needs child between the ages of 3 - 10 years who might benefit from the scientifically-proven advancements of therapeutic yoga?
Little Magpies Speech, a pediatric speech and language pathology practice, and Live In Joy Yoga are bridging their clinical knowledge and yoga and meditative expertise to host a series of specialized yoga workshops for children with developmental challenges.
Children will be guided to participate in gentle breathing techniques, movement and creative exercises, and mindfulness practices for enhancing self-regulation, improving balance and coordination, increasing strength and focus, and minimizing stress and over stimulation.
Guided yoga sessions include:
- Breathing techniques to enhance self-regulation and support respiration for speech and language
- Movement sequences to improve motor planning, balance, coordination, strength and flexibility
- Meditation techniques to increase attention and focus while decreasing overstimulation and encouraging relaxation
- Hands-on, sensory-based creative activities that promote awareness and processing of emotions/feelings
