Welcome to Yoga4Autism, I am David Ellams BSc(Hons) and I am the founder and Managing Director of Yoga4Autism.

We help people with special needs using healthy natural methods such as yoga, mindfulness, meditation, etc by addressing the causes rather than covering up the symptoms with mind numbing drugs as has been the way of the past. In doing so we can help as many people live happy fulfilling life's to their FULL potential without limitations...

I can personally vouch this works since I myself am on the spectrum (I was given the label of Aspergers, Dyspraxia & Dyselxia) and after a lifetime of trying everything with nothing really working, I finally discovered yoga, mindfulness and meditation, which helped turned my life around in the most amazing way. I have had a really hard life due to not having the help I really needed, I now wish to help others so they do not have to suffer as I once did...

Please sign up in the relevant pink or blue box below if you are interested either in our classes or becoming one of our esteemed yoga teachers. Many thanks! :)

Be the change you wish to see in the world...
