Description: This program was developed for children with ADHD and autism spectrum disorders but is applicable as an important experience for all children. The program is designed to enhance learning and brain development for children by blending stories, yoga postures, breathing, and relaxation. The practice of yoga, with focus on the breath and postures, helps kids relax, focus, and become more flexible and emotionally balanced. The class is taught by integrative yoga therapist Jillian Friedman.
