|Yo’tism is a training school and the founder of a unique specialised sensory Yoga method, designed to enhance the lives of those with ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition) symptoms. It is a powerful, profound and practical technique that aids children and adults on the autistic spectrum. It fuses together elegantly, our modern age scientific understanding of movement, the brain and neuro-sensory systems, with the ancient healing art of yoga.
Yo’tism is a compassionate, progressive organisation that is dedicated to bringing the magic of yoga to everyone. We are constantly developing, researching and building awareness on this new adapted yoga method.
We provide quality training for professionals, parents, teachers and anyone in the SEN community. Our team of highly skilled and experienced therapists work in outreach, schools, homes and from our dedicated studio in Hertfordshire. We look forward to welcoming you to Yo’tism and sharing the experience of this wonderful work and adapted yoga for those on the spectrum.
“My child has benefited enormously from this yoga in helping him calm, have better understanding and management of his body and emotions and in just allowing him that space in the busyness of his world to stop, organise, breathe and relax in a safe and loving way”

Feedback from a parent
“Yoga works for me in such an amazing way; it really helps me to stay calm, centred and grounded. When I finally discovered yoga about five years ago, it really helped with my symptoms, I felt amazing after just one session. The more I did, the better I felt. Each time I did a session my ASD symptoms faded more and more until they were barely present at all. To the point where I sometimes would forget I was on the spectrum and that I was any different to anyone else. It was and still is only really noticeable sometimes in social interaction and communication.”
David Ellams – Founder of Yoga4Autism
“I do my little 10-30 minute yoga routine daily; if I miss it I can really tell the difference. The longer I do not do it the more my ASD symptoms begin to return, after a few days they really are starting to cause issues again, after a week I am really struggling to cope.”
