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.
