Four Testimonials from Special Yoga and Mindfulness for Autism and ADHD students

Special Yoga and Mindfulness for Autism and ADHD

During the February cold snap we welcomed a group of students into the warmth of London’s Jamyang Buddhist Centre. Jyoti Manuel and a team of Special Yoga trainers led the 3 day course, Special Yoga and Mindfulness for Autism and ADHD, and shared the Special Yoga methodology with people from different walks of life. We are grateful to four of the students who joined us in February and who shared their thoughts with us.

Our May 23-25th 2018 course, Special Yoga and Mindfulness for Autism and ADHD, in West London is booking now.


“As a parent of a child with autism, this course was extremely helpful to understand the different types of breathing and the benefits my son can get from it.

Watching the videos and live yoga sessions is an amazing way to demonstrate how children can benefit from several poses regardless of their different challenges/limitations. Special Yoga team members are all warm and welcoming. Thank you so much for a brilliant training.”

— Adriana, mum


“Having never attended a yoga class before I was unsure of what to expect. I was open to new ideas but unsure how most of the complex children at our school would be able to access it. As soon as I entered the training room, I instantly felt a warmth from Jyoti and her wonderful team. It was apparent after a short while that the Special Yoga methods and practices are accessible to ALL children whatever their needs may be.”

— Donna Cardew, PE Teacher


 

“Through her teachings, Jyoti allows and expresses great compassion towards the children, by giving them the tools they need to journey inside themselves and connect with a calm, peaceful, loving and safe space.”

Sally, Yoga Therapist


“I have found the course invaluable both for my OT practice and for my own personal use. My experience here has reminded me of the importance of acceptance of myself and the children I work with. Yoga provides tools that are reflective in integrating the senses using breathing and postures. The need for equipment is removed, it focuses on reducing stress and anxiety the I have observed prevents us moving on and engaging and enables self soothing. As an OT I can only see this as helping to improve my practice and I will incorporate this into my own life.”
