Participants will start each day by deepening their own Yoga practice with a Meditation and Hatha Yoga Class led by Sonia Sumar or other Certified Yoga instructor assisting Sonia during the program. Four hands on training sessions with children with Down Syndrome and/or Cerebral Palsy follow. Each class ends with a group discussion and question and answer period about the techniques learned, the appropriate yoga routine for each child and which stage the child is in.
We will be working with children (any age) who have Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy. Please contact the program coordinator if you have a child or a client that would like to participate in our Program as a Demonstration. Sonia will be working with 4 children per day: two in the morning and two in the afternoon. We appreciate your help in bringing demos in as they are the highlights of our Programs.
