Connecting Through Movement by Louise Goldberg

For kids on the autism spectrum, yoga therapy can yield big benefits for body, mind, and spirit…

Yoga is a movement therapy that offers families a way to have fun together. There is no competition in yoga, promoting a sense of community and increased self-esteem. Yoga provides tools to build strength, flexibility, and bilateral coordination while also improving balance. Additionally, it helps in developing motor skills, body-awareness and self-control, leads to improved social interaction and play skills, and teaches relaxation techniques. By creating a quiet, uncluttered environment, with personal space clearly delineated by the placement of the mats, you offer respite for the sensory sensitive child.
