“We have two yoga instructors with experience in children with special needs. They are wanting to offer a 6 week yoga class to children with Cerebral Palsy. The instructors both love working with children and are passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga with children. Some of the benefits of yoga for children with Cerebral Palsy are: increased respiratory function, improved circulation, decreased muscle tone, increased muscle tone, increased focus and concentration, stretching and realigning the spine, improved digestion, improved self-regulation skills, connection with others, and body awareness.”
