WHAT WE DO
The Sonia Sumar Method - Yoga for All Abilities ®, LLC training Programs offer a unique learning environment for children and their parents, special education teachers, Yoga teachers and health care professionals.

C-IAYT, E-RYT® 500, RCYT®, YACEP®
Sonia is a recognized member of: Yoga Alliance (US and UK), Integral Yoga Teachers Association and International Association of Yoga Therapists.
She began teaching Yoga for children with special needs after her daughter Roberta was born with Down Syndrome in 1972. Sonia noticed many positive changes in Roberta from using Yoga, so in 1975 she became a Certified Yoga Teacher. Sonia's life dream is to help the world's special children achieve their full potential and become active and productive members of society. Nothing can better express her success than the letters she receives from the parents of her students.
Our 95H Certification Program is a comprehensive training that provides the essential tools for working with the population with special needs. Using hands-on instruction, our teachers guide program participants through each stage of the special child’s development.
These courses are open to Yoga therapists, instructors, students, health care practitioners, and families of special children who have completed our Yoga for the Special Child® 95H Certification Program Part 1.
This 200H Yoga Alliance approved program will give you the tools to work with adults with and without special needs following the Sonia Sumar Method.
