ADHD & ADD
  19. 19. • Children with dyslexia find disability in their body positioning and co-ordination.• Challenged in numeracy and sports skills and any tasks that require sequencing.• Children with dyspraxia benefit from clear and simple instructions – mouse posture can help them become aware of their bodies and their breathing.• Breathing helps these children to focus and listen.• Children with dyslexia have benefited from the eye exercises as these help to develop the optic nerve and in turn encourage the brain to work more effectively.• Yogic Breathing – Strengthens immune system and improve the function of the central nervous system.• Balancing Postures – Develops concentration levels whilst the postures work helps to improve body awareness, in particular through holding postures for a little longer.• Relaxation and Visualisation – Good for concentration and memory retention Dyslexia & Dyspraxia
  20. 20. • Children on the autistic spectrum have very low muscle tone and are often left handed.• The cross mid line challenges of postures such as cycling and climbing that YogaBugs offers can support and assist these children at many different levels.• Through the focusing of the mind and breathing techniques, yoga offers autistic children the opportunity to improve their mobility, memory and communication skills.• Find it difficult to imagine, therefore it is much easier to describe going in and out of the posture without identifying the animal, tree etc… itself.• Relaxation can help autistic children reflect and unwind after a session. Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  21. 21. • Yoga will help these children to have a greater physical awareness of their body and how it moves, which may make them higher functioning individuals in terms of age appropriate goals.• Children with aspersers syndrome have low muscle tone and are extremely flexible therefore they would benefit from the strengthening effects of the posture work.• Yoga postures help to build strength around the vulnerable areas of the joints whilst helping to develop muscle tone.• Calming and tension releasing exercises can be suitable for reducing coping mechanisms such as hand flapping.• YogaBugs encourages a lot of praise which benefits their self-esteem e.g. ‘I like the way you snap your arms in crocodile or standing tall like a tree’.• Children with aspergers can suffer from ‘overload’. This is when there is too much noise or too many people around them, therefore yoga encourages individual work and relaxation at the end. Aspergers Syndrome
  22. 22. • Reduce areas affected by high muscle tone so that the body is able to move more freely. This is achieved through stretching the muscles but also through mobilising the spine, and in turn releasing pressure on the discs and reducing muscular tension through the radial nerves.• Posture work helps to release tight muscles and strengthens weak muscles in other areas.• Postural alignment works on both over and underdeveloped muscle groups as it is such a comprehensive way of exercising the body.• Begin at floor level for children who find it difficult to balance.• Reduce high muscle tone in the calves, yoga can help encourage children to walk on their heels. Cerebral Palsy
  23. 23. • Children with downs syndrome are generally affectionate and extremely flexible.• The function of the lymphatic system is improved through posture work, which in turn aids the immune system. These postures include chest thumping and knee hugging.• The endocrine system is strengthened and this helps with stabilising weight as children with downs are more prone to weight gain e.g. seated forward bends.• Children with Downs Syndrome have Atlas Instability (their top cervical vertebrae are weak). Avoid inverted postures with extreme flexion of the neck. Downs Syndrome
