I now have new ways to work with a child who had been labeled as dysfunctional, and they are all working!
(PRWEB) February 08, 2012
Shakta Kaur Khalsa, yoga teacher and founder of Radiant Child Yoga Program, and Allison Morgan, Occupational Therapist, will co-lead a weekend training to teach parents, teachers and therapists who raise or work with special needs children how to incorporate yoga postures and breath work into their daily activities and therapies.
One in 110 children in the United States has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and more than 9% of American children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).* Many of these children are familiar with occupational and physical therapy, and those with ADHD often take prescription drugs.
But Shakta and Allison, with more than 50 years of combined experience, have found that when yoga is incorporated into the routines of children with special needs, those children can learn to strengthen their bodies, focus their minds, and open their hearts.
Shakta Kaur is one of the top five Kundalini Yoga teachers in the world and is a Montessori certified teacher. Allison Morgan is the founder of Zensational Kids. Their training will be February 24-26 at Yoga Village, 2760 Daniel Street in Clearwater, FL, 33761. The cost is $395 until February 10 and $450 after February 10. Students can register at http://www.ayogavillage.com or they can call 727-712-1475 or more information.
