What to expect….

Families practising yoga with childrenYoga for children with additional needs includes the classical yoga practices of movement, breathing, deep relaxation combined with sound, rhythm, massage and sensory integration techniques.

Everyone is special. Regardless of abilities, appearance, culture, gender, race or the assumptions society has placed on us.

Our instructor Debs, has completed further training in Special Needs Yoga, Autism, Movement Based Learning and Brain Gym and have the understanding that they can help take children out of their stressed state and help them move into a relaxed state that creates the optimum condition and possibility for positive change. Simply starting by meeting every child with a pure intention to create a practice that encourages them to reach their fullest potential and celebrating the strength within each child we work from there.

The benefits can include:

  • Improving motor control and motor planning skills
  • Developing physical strength, muscle tone and balance
  • Promoting flexibility and correcting postural misalignment
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Establishing calm, organised mental states
  • Improve concentration
  • Reduce hyperactivity
  • Relieve respiratory ailments
  • Develop the ability to relax
  • Release tension
  • Reduce fear, frustration and stress
  • Enrich the quality and quantity of sleep

Each session is based on the principles of movement, body work, breath-work and creativity. Sessions build upon each other, with each one focusing on a different discipline, including yoga, breath-work, massage, aromatherapy and movement based learning. This approach creates a space for exploration, inspiration and sharing enabling a personalised ‘toolbox’ of strategies for each child.

All sessions will be run by qualified Yoga Instructor,  Debs.

Sessions will be held at Leeds Mencap which has a fully accessible building, disabled toilets, baby changing and a Changing Place with a hoist.Contact Miriam on if you have any questions or if you need any support with payment. We aim to make all our sessions inclusive – no matter the barriers.
