Yoga for Children with ADHD, Autism, and
those who are Differently-Abled

“As a pediatric physical therapist attending The Radiant Child Yoga for Differently-Abled Children, I brought home a plethora of clinical applications, ideas, techniques and games to put use with my patients.  The two instructors complimented one another beautifully with all their clinical knowledge along with their yoga and meditative expertise. I loved the use of music and movement as a yoga treatment option. I highly recommend this class for health care clinicians, along with educators, parents, and yoga instructors looking to integrate the special needs population in their classes.”

– Kathy Harrington, MA, PT, Winchester Hospital, MA

Learn how to reach the hearts and minds of neurodiverse children with creativity, intuition, and excellent therapeutic tools. In the process, we’ll learn what these very special children have to teach us.

Participants will learn how to effectively integrate yoga into home and school life, including therapeutic treatment for children with learning and developmental differences such as ADD/ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorders, etc. Social-emotional, physiological, cognitive and sensory-motor benefits will be addressed. Through lecture, videotape and experiential labs, participants will learn how to apply:

  1. Breath: to enhance self-regulation, modulation and organization, as well as supporting respiration for language
  2. Movement: to improve motor planning, balance, coordination, strength and flexibility
  3. Meditation and Relaxation: to decrease stress and promote stillness of the mind for increased attention and ability to focus
Did you know that beside being a stand-alone training, Yoga for Children with ADHD/Autism, counts as one of the 20 hour modules for both 95 and 200 hour teacher training certifications?

“The day I returned from training to the children in my class, I began to use many teachings of RCY. During the training, my mind was already relating certain concepts to specific children I interact with. As well, I could see that each and every child would benefit from what I brought back. I began implementing the approach of holding space for the child and letting her show you what she needs, then using language that would help the child feel comfort. The children began to feel the shift, and I could feel each child’s self-awareness and ability to self-regulate improve.
I consider it such a privilege to have participated and learned so much during the RCY ADHD/Autism course.”
