NESCA Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Ann-Noelle McCowan will be offering yoga-based therapy for individuals and small groups on Saturday mornings starting in September. If your children have anxiety, ASD, ADHD or other behavioral self-regulation issues and might benefit, seriously consider enrolling them!
Please call 617-658-9800 for additional details.
Therapeutic yoga uses movement, breathing, mindfulness exercises and meditation techniques to bring children to an awareness of what is happening in their bodies and minds and to provide them with specific tools they can use to regulate themselves. Games, music and other fun yoga-based activities are incorporated to engage children and teach targeted skills.
Many children respond better to the body-based approach used in therapeutic yoga than to traditional talking-based therapies. This approach can be especially powerful for kinesthetic learners and those with language processing difficulties.
