I have been a Special Education Teacher for over 15 years and have found yoga to be incredibly helpful in my own life and in the lives of my students. I teach a yoga class for children with special needs. I also teach groups in conjunction with speech therapists that incorporate communication skills with the practive. I currently teach students with Autism, Cognitive Disabilities, other developmental disabilities, and ADHD.
I enjoy teaching children with special needs and their siblings together to help them develop stronger relationships. Growing up with a sister with special needs taught me the value of finding experiences and activities that can be shared. I enjoy a focus on using the movements and breathing to help children develop greater self-control, emotional-awareness, body-awareness, and communication skills. I do this in both the personalized and group settings. Please contact me for further details related to specific needs.
