  • Self-Calming Strategies
  • Self-regulation
  • Sensory Processing Disorders
  • Speech/Language Development
  • Strength building

Each children’s yoga therapy session lasts 45-60 minutes depending on the age of the child. Your child will receive a personalized yoga therapy lesson plan, including visuals, to take home.

brandon-croppedCea Rubin has shared yoga therapeutically with individuals and groups of all ages and of diverse cultures through a person-centered, empowering, and strengths-based approach.

Her experience working with children includes sharing yoga practices with individuals and groups aging from early childhood through early adulthood diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, ADHD, and/or other behavioral issues; providing therapy and group sessions to adolescents in psychiatric residential treatment facilities, many if not all of whom have (C-)PTSD and attachment disorders; and teaching children’s yoga classes that are open to the public.

Her playfulness, deeply empathic listening, and compassionate presence foster a therapeutic partnership that inspires goal achievement and healing self-realization.
