Description:

Yoga, Child’s Play interactive movie course will provide participants with the knowledge and expertise needed to complement and individualize treatment strategies for multiple pediatric diagnoses. Such diagnoses include Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, ADHD and learning disabilities. The course will enhance conventional therapeutic approaches and provide alternative methods of treatment. The course content includes balanced yoga poses to increase body awareness, position in space, strength and flexibility. Also, specialized breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to improve concentration and reduce hyperactivity. All of the above directly relates to therapy provided in the pediatric settings. The course also will provide participants with the knowledge and expertise needed to offer the same benefits of increased body awareness, position in space, strength, flexibility, improved concentration and relaxation to healthy children. Note: This course provides conceptual preparation to seek additional training, and does not provide you a mentored hands-on skills session. Please seek additional experience, with a mentor, to perform hands-on skills.
