Hamilton-5 Week Yoga Class for Teens with Autism
Registration opens September 3, 2019 at 9:00AM
Teens with ASD, ages 12-25 and their caregiver are invited to attend 5-weeks of private yoga classes in Hamilton at De La Sol Yoga in Hamilton.
A yoga practice yields a multitude of benefits for all who practice. Reduced stress, greater strength and flexibility, increased sense of peace, better sleep, and improved concentration and focus, to name just a few.
In addition to these benefits of a yoga practice, young people on the ASD spectrum will gain the further benefits of:
- Greater coping skills
- Improve motor skills
- Better sensory integration
- Tools for self-regulation
Join long-time Kids’ Yoga teacher, Heather Elson in a weekly practice which will include movement inspired by visual clues, breath work for self-soothing and focusing, guided relaxation, and mindful awareness games and activities.
Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00PM
This program is being offered at a cost of $5.00/participant for 5 weeks of yoga classes. This cost has been subsidized for families due to a generous grant from Hamilton Community Foundation.
This is a 5 week program, and we strongly encourage participation at all 5 weeks. Spaces are extremely limited. Pre-Registration is required.
This program is being offered as a parent-teen program. Parents are highly encouraged to participate alongside their child.
Families are encouraged to come dressed in comfortable clothing and to bring a water bottle. Please bring a yoga mat if you have one available. If not, equipment can be provided.
Families will be asked to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the start of the 1st class to complete a waiver form for their child’s participation.
Supervision of children/youth at this program is the sole responsibility of parents/guardians and caregivers; Parents are required to stay onsite during the program, and participate alongside their child.
This event is intended for individuals with ASD only. Due to location constraints, the studio is only able to support 1 parent/guardian or caregiver per student.
