Yoga Helps Kids With Autism In Florida School
A school in Florida has turned to yoga to help children with autism. The results are not only amazing but inspiring as well.
Louise Goldberg , one of the founders of the yoga program says, "Children with autism don't like change. They like predictability... We have a ritual beginning and ending, which gives them comfort. We offer challenges gradually. The postures make them feel better and teach them to redirect their energy before an [emotional] explosion."
Another teacher adds, "Everyone tells them to relax, but this teaches them what it means to relax. This shows them that relaxing is safe and comfortable.
Namaste to that!
