Research shows that yoga can significantly reduce symptoms of anxiety and trauma. This trauma-sensitive approach to yoga with kids integrates the ancient wisdom of yoga with up-to-date relational neuroscience (specifically, polyvagal theory)to help kids feel more safe, calm and confident.

Sessions include:
  • Play
  • Trauma-sensitive approach
  • Mindfulness activities
  • Developmentally appropriate education about the brain and nervous system
  • Breathing exercises (pranayama) that improve nervous system function
  • Yoga postures (asana) that help balance the nervous system
  • Parent-child partner activities that foster coregulation and bonding
  • Therapeutic stories specially curated for your child’s specific needs

My daughter and I took an 8 week course with Elisha as first time yoga participants. We not only learned some new ways to be proud of our bodies and our strength but we enjoyed a serenity at home for the entire next day after our weekly lessons. Elisha is great at explaining concepts to kids and parents. We would take this course again!Adoptive Parent
