About Special Yoga Foundation


Special Yoga Foundation (Registered Charity no. 1163374) was created to serve as many special children as possible through the medium of yoga. We consider all children special and know that no label can define or limit a child’s potential for positive change.

All children can benefit from the therapeutic service we provide, a conviction born from working with thousands of special children throughout the years and witnessing the profound and far reaching effects that therapeutic yoga has on the lives of every child it reaches.

In addition, we are also a center of excellence for Therapeutic and Professional Yoga Teacher Training offering programs for yoga teachers, parents and pediatric professionals to deliver yoga as a therapeutic treatment in the special needs community. We also offer training in schools to support whole classrooms as well as smaller groups of children.
