This intensive three-day course will give you the experience to use Yoga and Mindfulness therapeutically to benefit Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and ADD/ADHD.
It assists you to develop the confidence to effectively plan and sequence one-to-one and group Yoga and Mindfulness sessions that lead to increased well-being for this population. It will also allow you to bring the benefits of Yoga and Mindfulness into your own daily life.
This course has been a springboard to further interest and learning. It has inspired me to incorporate my own Yoga practice with the children I work with. I also liked that we got the opportunity to watch Jo work, it galvanised the learning. -R M
