YogaTherapy4Kids – Specialized Online Yoga Training for Special Needs Children

Suzie is the Founder of YogaTherapy4kids Teacher Training and offers training and private classes to children with special needs.

Suzie has worked with Children who have Challenges in the following fields Cerebral Palsy, Autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome, Developmental and Learning Disabilities, Language and Cognitive Processing delays, Sensory Processing Challenges and children who suffer from mental disorders such as anxiety and depression.

Suzie works with all ages of children who present with challenges and her goal is to find the gifting of every child and teach them that they are not victims of their challenge and have great gifts for humanity at large.

Walking the road with parents of the special child

Suzie has her own child who has Dyspraxia, ADHD and auditory and visual processing challenges.

In her walk with physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists, as well as alternative modalities of healing, Suzie saw that there was an incredible overlay with yoga and these healing practices.

In particular Occupational Therapy. In 2020 she teamed up with Lyndal Alexander and launched her Online 100 Hour YogaTherapy4kids course. YogaTherapy is a combination of Yoga and Occupational therapy practices, to bring about a profoundly high support for children who need emotional, mental, physical and therapeutic regulation of their whole being.

Lyndal Alexander

Lyndal Alexander qualified as an Occupational Therapist at the University of Cape Town. She has a decade of experience in working with children with complex needs, locally and in Africa; including physical and neurodevelopmental disabilities, children at risk, palliative care and mental health. Passionate about building resilient children and families in the face of trauma and disability, she completed a Masters in Early Childhood Intervention (UP) in 2017. Her interest in family-centred and holistic wellbeing approaches to children encouraged her to embark on the Yoga4Kids training with a special interest in therapeutic yoga and the research evidence behind it.
