Teaching Yoga to Children With Down Syndrome

As is the case with any child, with any condition, a yoga program that is tailored to meet their unique needs and interests will allow them to soar.


We’re glad you stopped by. If you share our passion for helping children and families develop wellness through awareness, we are here to support you. We have lots of different ways we can provide you with Yoga tools and resources. The ancient practice of Yoga is an effective solution for the challenges our children are facing today. Empower yourself with what you need to know to help the children in your life.

We offer a wonderful array of effective techniques, based in the science and art of Yoga, for nurturing the development of children into the happiest, healthiest and most well balanced individuals they can be. It's more than barking in Down Dog and playing games (though we Do do that!). We are teaching children to develop self-regulation skills along with self-awareness and self-mastery. Parents, teachers, health care workers and other professionals who work with young people can benefit by augmenting their expertise with these techniques.

Are you looking for ways to positively impact children and families in your community? Let us know how we can help. We want to provide you with whatever you need - training, guidance, information and resources - to accomplish your goals towards children's wellness.
