Many of my clients have limited movement quality and repertoire, poor attention, trauma and sensory issues.
When I began to teach clients yoga, developmental movement patterns and simple breathing techniques, they became more integrated in their motor responses and their attention improved drastically!
Trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness created an immediate shift in clients’ body awareness, ability and tolerance. Clients were empowered by tuning into the body to a place of relaxation, control and confidence. Learning mindfulness and yoga reduces stress and increases movement repertoire.
As a therapist, the more I quieted my mind, the more effective I was in teaching my clients to self-pace and access the brain body connection somatically. My work became more successful as the clients felt less stressed and more focused.
Come experience this brain-body seminar and learn trauma-informed yoga strategies for children and adolescents with ADHD, autism, trauma and sensory issues. Learn techniques for attention, following directions, managing emotions, completing daily tasks, socializing and communicating.
