- Sensory Yoga for Kids
Shows how to use yoga to bring calm and focus (and exercise) to kids with special needs.
Bodies need movement in order to learn and regulate the nervous system. Yoga offers movement, strengthening, breathing, and more. Children need this type of stimulation and thrive under it.
Childhood is a time filled with new motor challenges and hurdles, and this is doubly true for kids with autism and other special needs. The motor challenges kids face require strength, coordination, and the ability to focus and attend.
The author provides information to help understand sensory processing, how it affects regulation, how yoga helps with sensory regulation as well as learning how to adapt yoga to meet specific needs.
Yoga can help kids with these challenges as it can strengthen their bodies while calming. This book demonstrates how to get kids started with the discipline and how to use yoga to support special needs, increasing body awareness and fine tune coordination skills. Softcover. 200 pages.
