Yoga for Special Needs with Joshua at Centered every Wednesday at 1:30pm beginning in October

Group yoga classes for kids, teens and adults with special needs, their family members and friends!

Yoga for Special Needs with Joshua is designed to allow each student to experience the most connection to themselves and their environment as possible. This adaptive class is accessible to all and meets each member of the class exactly where he or she is.

Yoga for Special Needs incorporates gentle movement and breathing exercises to improve motor skills, facilitate relaxation, improve focus, reduce anxiety and encourage self regulation. Students, their Family Members and Care Providers are invited and encouraged to participate in the class. This particitpation allows all present to receive the benefits of yoga as well as giving caregivers and family members techniques to better support the student. Classes remain inclusive and adaptive where each pose will be visually demonstrated and verbally described and modified to meet the needs and abilities of each student.

Adaptive yoga uses props: chairs, walls, blankets, yoga blocks, yoga straps, mats and yoga straps. Props are there to provide stability and do not necessarily make the pose easier but assists in allowing the student to be in a pose and breath with more comfort and security.
