Yoga Therapy: Private + Group Sessions
Stress takes a serious toll on children and teens with special needs. When feeling pressured by our speeding-up society to do and be more, they grapple with illness, insomnia, mood swings, depression, and anxiety.
By practicing yoga, children and teens learn to turn off the stress response on their own, creating a positive chain reaction in their lives. They come to see that they hold the magic wand.
Stretch What Matters Yoga Therapy is appropriate for ages 5 and older. It entails bringing the mind and body into balance through the principals of yoga: breath work, movement, and meditation.
Private Sessions: Individualized therapy, with or without the parent(s) present
Group Sessions: Small groups of 2 – 4 children/teens
Phone/Skype Consults: For parents who incorporate yoga into their home routine or are thinking about doing so
Understanding your child’s needs in advance is vital to formulating an effective therapy plan. So before your first yoga therapy session, you’ll complete a questionnaire regarding your child’s current mind-body health. We’ll also schedule a time to speak by phone, to review details and to cover any questions you and your child may have about yoga therapy. Stretch What Matters will assess what will serve your child best, group or individual sessions.
Progress: Milestones + Reports
Each yoga therapy session is based on your child’s developmental, emotional and behavioral needs. Personalized yoga plans are created for children registered in private sessions.
Following every 8th therapy session, you’ll receive a written summary of your child’s progress toward the goals outlined in the yoga plan.
