7 Benefits of Yoga for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders

on January 19, 2012

When my daughter started experiencing seizures at 6 years old, I was in search of every way possible to help her. The thought of developing her mind-body awareness and teaching her breath work to calm herself through the rapid fire of neurons causing the seizures was an intriguing idea to me… and so my path to children’s yoga began. (Fast forward ahead a bit and she can now recognize the “aura” or onset of a seizure and use breath work to shorten the duration and bring it under control. It’s AMAZING.)

Here is a wonderful article from Mind Body Green about how yoga can benefit kids (and parents!) with ASD’s. Yoga for special needs is my next up certification! I’m so excited to share it with parents who are looking for another way to improve the lives of their wonderful children!
