Synergy SEND Yoga for Juniors (beginner)
Synergy SEND Yoga For Juniors (beginners) is a course developed specifically for SEN junior children at beginner level. Yoga can improve focus and attention, sensory information processing, communication, self-regulation and motor control.
These skills generally expand to other areas in life, ultimately helping those with special educational needs lead more balanced, healthy, socially integrated and independent lives. These classes are designed for primary aged children with Learning and Additional Needs. These may include autism, physical difficulties and/or medical needs. This course also aims to enrich children’s well-being and classes explore friendship, confidence and kindness.
Themes include: My happy place, Focus on the breath, In the Garden, Going to the Sea, Rocket & Stars, Going on an adventure, Dragon Yoga, Pirate Yoga, Superhero Yoga & My Cosy place.
NB: The final Cosy Place lesson takes place in a dimmed setting - to celebrate the effect of our Lava lamp and to get ready for relaxation.
