We’ve been working hard to expand our online platform of classes for all and we are very excited to announce that we have been extremely fortunate to receive National Lottery funding from Sport England to take our platform National, in partnership with EMD UK. This funding is from the Tackling Inequalities Fund which exists to help reduce the negative impact of the coronavirus and the widening of the inequalities in sport and physical activity

Synergy SEN Yoga™ for Children with Autism


Synergy SEN Yoga™ for children with Autism is a seated yoga and well-being class. Some lessons include soft toys Prana Parrot, Meditating Max and Yoga Ted. Children may also bring their own favourite toy to class.

Benefits include improved posture, fitness, physical & motor skills, spatial awareness, balance, co-ordination and flexibility. Synergy Yoga has great potential for autism therapy as it directly addresses the symptoms of Autism in children. It helps to increase body awareness, improve motor skills, helps with transition and to develop self-esteem and communication skills.

Synergy SEN Yoga™ for Autism is designed to enhance the lives of those with ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition) symptoms. Yoga can improve focus and attention, sensory information processing, communication, self-regulation and motor control. These skills generally expand to other areas in life, ultimately helping those with ASD lead more balanced, healthy, socially integrated and independent lives.

These lessons include some exercises for upper body only and some exercises for upper and lower body to offer diversity and levels.

Becky is on a mission to help participants tap into their highest potential: “overcoming self-sabotage, awakening to our truest desires and healing from any past trauma or wounds, which would disable us from our highest potential”.

As a teacher Rebekah enjoys making yoga accessible to all – and often brings in help from her soft toy collection – Prana Parrot, Meditating Max and Yoga Ted.

For adults and teens, each class offers an opportunity to embrace a deeper knowledge of yourself and you will be encouraged to believe in yourself! Rebekah's classes are fun, engaging and encouraging - she has a large following on Synergy. You can get to know Rebekah via our inclusive online yoga and ParaStars Yoga® programmes and she also teaches for Synergy for their British Blind Sport partnership.

Gill is attentive to detail within her yoga teaching, emphasizing the importance of deep breathing for us all and teaches live SEND yoga classes for Synergy in leisure centres.

Gill believes that everyone should have the opportunity to learn Yoga and enjoy the benefits it offers both physically and mentally. With twenty years of experience, Gill wants “everyone to enjoy a yoga class that stretches your body and mind, and brings a little calmness, something we definitely need right now”. “Yoga is the producer of the greatest happiness" - Bhagavad Gita....And we all want to be happy.”
