SOCIAL FLEXIBILITY YOGA links the benefits of yoga and therapy together, including physical and mental flexibility, inner and outer focus, self-regulation and awareness of others. The combination of techniques offers students the opportunity to put into practice (with their bodies) what they are learning (in their brains) and realize how the two are connected.
Social Flexibility Yoga teaches students from the “inside out”–meaning they are given a working knowledge of the thoughts, feelings and consequences associated with their actions and choices.
Deepening their understanding of how we communicate with our bodies and how to adapt this expression based on context are some of the main components. Becoming equipped with strategies for making calm (and strong) choices while in a relaxed (and empowered) state gives students the experience and results they need to independently use these tools in other environments.
Among the students who benefit from Social Flexibility Yoga are those with Autism and Asperger’s, ADD/HD, Non-Verbal Learning Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Sensory Integration Disorder, processing delays, anxiety, depression, and anyone who needs a little extra support.
The instructor, Aimee, is also a cognitive behavorial therapist and has been working with children for over 20 years.
