Gemma from yoga gems visited the Harford Support Group to tell us all about what she does and the benefits of yoga, not only for our children but for us as well!

This is a bit about yoga gems that Gemma has written and sent us.

yoga gems exists to help children feel happier, content, and comfortable in their own skin. I believe all children are special and deserve to experience peace, joy and fulfilment of their potential and purpose. After 13 years as a primary teacher and an Msc in Special Education. I soon realised that children cannot learn if they are emotionally unregulated or have a negative self-concept.
Special Yoga Therapy
I work with children 1:1 using Special Yoga Methodology developed by Jyoti Manuel. This approach uses, yoga postures, mantras, breathing exercises and yoga philosophy to help children self-soothe, regulate emotions and develop self-awareness. This in turn allows them to take charge of their own mental and physical health and learn how to consciously relax.

Every session is fun, non-judgemental and adapted to the particular needs of the child.

Special Yoga therapy is suitable for children with additional support needs including autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, CP, anxiety, sensory processing conditions and children who need emotional or behavioural support.
