About Special Yoga

You are special. Regardless of your abilities, appearance, culture, gender, race or the assumptions society has placed on you. The activities Special Yoga do are centered around this belief

Special Yoga’s methodology includes the classical yoga practices of movement, breathing, deep relaxation combined with sound, rhythm, massage and sensory integration techniques delivered online, in person and a blend of both. We meet every child, individually, with their family and in group sessions, with a pure intention to create a practice that encourages them to their fullest potential. Celebrating the strength within each child and working from there. Taking the child out of stress and into a relaxed state creates the optimum condition and possibility for positive change. As part of our mission to reach all special children around the world, we are committed to build a global network of SY practitioners continuously supported through our accredited training courses delivered online, in person and a blend of both.

Thanks so much for this. I have been desperate to train with you and this has been great for me to do with my students while we are open during this worrying time.

Wonderful, easy to take up with many levels of special need and mainstream children. Was thinking I could adapt some of the soundings to childrens names as we have many varying relegions. I have been a student of zen buddhism for 15 years and love to be able to be open and flexible in delivery of mindfulness sessions. Thank you, I hope some day to meet you Jyoti. Love and best wishes to you from N.Z to the UK. xxxxx From Jyoti: Thank you so much Karen - yes adapt the soundings to children's names. we have done that in the past and it really works; given the power of the vibration of Om - I would try to keep that piece as you sing the names. The vibration of omm supports vagal tone which in turn calms the nervous system. good luck...blessings and love to you x
