Sonia Sumar teaches this comprehensive training course in the theory and practice of Yoga therapy for children 13 years old and above with learning and/or developmental disabilities.
This course is open to Yoga therapists, instructors and students, health care practitioners, and families of special children who have completed our Yoga for the Special Child®, Basic Program.
It is important to understand the medical contraindications to certain asanas, so please do not try to copy our work without proper instruction.
Homework to be completed before attending the Basic Program Part 2: Teach 4 half hour classes to a child or group of children, and record the last class for presentation at Basic 2. Any age from 0 to 18 is fine, but you are encouraged to teach older children since that is the focus of the Basic 2. Bring the recorded class to the Basic 2 so that it can be played in Windows Media Player or in Quick Time.
Yoga for the Special Child® Basic Program is mandatory before attending Basic Part 2 Program.
