YogaTherapy4Kids Specialized Training

Yoga4Kids has successfully presented children’s yoga vocational training programs in South Africa since 2005. During this time, we identified a need to incorporate yoga as an integrated modality for children with challenges and special needs. Our training is focused on bringing yoga to childrenwho are not able to participate in a conventional yoga program or need one-on-one yoga to manage their individual needs. These tailor made yoga programs are built with an occupational therapist and aim to improve the function, overall health and wellbeing of children with challenges.
