Children’s Yoga Therapy
Brandon sees children 1-on-1 for yoga therapy. She creates a sacred space for children to play, develop social skills, and establish a sense of calm. Parents are encouraged to remain with their child during the therapy session.
Children’s Yoga Therapy is beneficial for a wide variety of needs, including:
- Averting “meltdowns”
- Body Awareness
- Build Self-esteem
- Calm and Energize
- Emotional/Behavior Disorders
- Enhancing Independence
- Gross Motor Coordination
- Self-Calming Strategies
- Sensory Processing Disorders
- Speech/Language Development
- Strength building
Each children’s yoga therapy session lasts 30-45 minutes depending on the needs of the child. A typical session will last 30 minutes, with a 15 minute debrief with the parent. The debrief can happen within the studio, or on the phone at a more convenient time. Your child will receive a personalized yoga therapy lesson plan, including visuals, to take home.
