We all know that our bodies need movement in order to learn and regulate our nervous system. Many of us as adults participate in some sort of exercise during our weekly activities to help us feel good. Research shows that it is healthy for our hearts, minds and bodies to get exercise several times a week.
We also know that the use of calming strategies help us when we are stressed.
I am a pediatric Occupational Therapist who loves working with children and I find that activities like yoga are greatly beneficial to all of the children that I work with, no matter what their abilities or disabilities are.
Now why do we think Yoga could be beneficial for us and our children? Well, it offers movement, strengthening, breathing and more. Children need this type of stimulation and thrive under it.
In this book I will take you through the journey of understanding sensory processing, how it affects regulation, how yoga helps with sensory regulation as well as learning how to adapt yoga to meet your child’s specific needs.
