Nancy Williams

Yoga therapy can be a hugely rewarding approach for children with a wide range of special needs. This accessible guide contains simple yoga techniques that can be used with children of all abilities.

The author provides gentle yoga postures and exercises that can help to promote relaxation, flexibility, strength, coordination and body-awareness. Each posture is accompanied by a line drawing, and the author offers advice on how each posture appropriately supports the individual child's needs and abilities. Practical tips for incorporating creative fun and games into yoga sessions are included, and the author outlines the specific benefits of yoga for a wide range of conditions, including Attention Deficit Disorder, ASD, Cerebral Palsy, social communication difficulties, Down's syndrome, and scoliosis. The book concludes with child and parent reports of how yoga therapy has changed their life.
