Yoga for Autism Teacher Training

Yoga for Autism Teacher Training

Yoga is an incredibly powerful therapeutic tool to help us work at a truly individual level. We know that every individual needs a tailored approach, so we created Yoga for Autism as a toolkit for every trained practitioner to work with in their own way.

Yotism’s Yoga for Autism is a fusion of developmental neuroscience and the ancient healing art of yoga.  The technique will teach you regulation tools, calming techniques and integration methods that are proven to enhance the lives of those on the spectrum and enable them to thrive.

But it’s more than just having detailed knowledge. Our training is structured to provide you with a diverse toolkit to work confidently and flexibly with people with ASD and other related diversity. We are here with you every step of the way as you help people to improve their lives.

ASD exam stress

Yotism offers a range of training opportunities from one day workshops to a 60 hour fully accredited, speciality practitioner training. We also offer further specialisms to those who have completed our initial training.

Yoga for Autism will give you:

  • A wealth of knowledge on Autism and the underpinning neuro-science.
  • Practical experience and understanding of how yoga positively affects brain, body, sensory and nervous systems, emotional expression and inner balance.
  • A clear outline structure for practice and teaching methods.
  • The ability to adapt and offer this technique in ways that work for each individual.
  • Deeper trust to work with the power of your own intuition as a yoga practitioner.

Yoga for Autism training uses a combination of adapted asanas, neuro-sensory techniques, breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques to meet the needs of those with ASD.

It develops an internal sense of control and calm for each individual who learns to use relaxation, self-awareness and positive internal dialogue as tools for day to day life.

The reduction in stress as they interact with others and their environment results in a higher quality of life which can be sustained in the long term. Yoga for Autism provides individuals with skills for life and a positive sense of self.

Through effective practitioner delivery and regular intervention, Yoga for Autism allows an individual to reach a parasympathetic state where the body can digest food better, produce necessary coping hormones and optimise their immune system.
