Dear Yoga Teacher,
Autism and Cognitive Disabilities (Down’s Syndrome, Dyspraxia etc.) are becoming more and more prevalent in today’s world. Global statistics show a significant rise in clinical diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder alone, over the last three years, to the extent that these statistics are now impossible to ignore. Yoga as a spiritual and physical fitness practice, is also rapidly gaining recognition and was one of the top ten growth industries in 2012. It is becoming apparent that children and adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and other Cognitive Disabilities benefit greatly from yoga practice, that integrates music, colour and movement.
If you are a Yoga Teacher or a Classroom Teacher in schools/colleges, now is the perfect time to begin understanding how Yoga can benefit people of all ages, especially those with Autism and Cognitive Disabilities like Down’s Syndrome and Dyspraxia. With Y4A you can train under the guidance of professionals who have worked with Autism for many years and who have vast experience teaching Yoga. You can bring our unique accredited Samadhi Spectrum Yoga back into your School, Classroom or Workplace.
Use your Yoga4Autism Samadhi Spectrum Yoga Training to help individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and other Disabilities, to cope better in this often stressful modern world. Become part of theY4A Yogers Team, as a Yoga Leader in International workshops and in schools. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
