Dear Yoga for the Special Child Sangha,

 

We wanted to let you know about some big changes in the works! We were looking forward to full calendar of in-person trainings but the current world situation has prevented this from happening. Unfortunately, we need to cancel trainings as originally planned because our teachers will not be traveling—most likely through September 2021.  

 

But, rather than simply cancel the courses, we have been working very hard to adapt our trainings to an online course format.  For many years, students have asked for this option and the silver lining of the COVID19 pandemic is that now is the time we have enough time to work on it!  

 

During this time of crisis, we believe we are offering something that will really be beneficial for you and for your children and clients with special needs.   We know how important Yoga is and that it can offer a different perspective on getting through difficult situations.  We know that lives are changed for the better from attending our training course.  

 

We are excited to announce that Part 1 will now be a LIVE streaming course with Sonia Sumar and our team of dedicated teachers! The Credit and Contact hours will be the same but spread out a little differently to accommodate these unprecedented times but will still satisfy all Yoga Alliance and AOTA guidelines and requirements.  These will not be just watch the class online courses. These will still be individualized courses to the students who are in attendance and the teacher will be doing the training LIVE with you. There will be discussions and instructions, questions and answers, demonstrations and practice.  The only difference is that you will not be together in the same physical space! 

 

We are excited to be able to offer this training and to fulfill our commitment to you and hope you will make the commitment to your Yoga journey and attend online.  

We are ready for this new adventure and look forward to seeing you in Cyberspace!   

 

Peace, love and light, 

 

Sonia Sumar, Founder

Renata Sumar Gaertner, Director

the Yoga for the Special Child Office Team 

and our Program Coordinators
