About the event

CEREBRAL PALSY AND DOWN SYNDROME (18H)

Sonia Sumar teaches this comprehensive continuing education course in the theory and practice of Yoga techniques for babies and children with Cerebral Palsy or Down Syndrome. It is essential to understand the medical contraindications to specific asanas and breathing techniques, so please do not try to copy our work without proper instruction Program Information:

Participants will start each day by deepening their Yoga practice with a Meditation and Hatha Yoga Class led by Sonia Sumar or another Certified Yoga instructor assisting Sonia during the program. Four hands-on training sessions with children with Down Syndrome and/or Cerebral Palsy follow.  Each class ends with a group discussion and question and answer period about the techniques learned, the appropriate yoga routine for each child, and which stage the child is in.

This three-day program runs from 06 pm to 09 pm (online - on Friday) and Saturday and Sunday (Hybrid) from 08 am to 5 pm. 

We will be working with children (any age) who have Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy. Please contact the program coordinator if you have a child or a client who would like to participate in our Program as a Demonstration.
