Yoga for the special needs child

Anyone tried and had luck with yoga? The book "Yoga for the special needs child" was recommended to me by our last PT. Has this helped anyone stay limber?

I bought the book last year but with school (I'm in my second year of college) haven't had much time to try the stretches. I have read through parts of the book though and really like it.

Yoga for children with special needs

Postby Flying Dragoon » Mon Oct 23, 2006 2:58 pm

I have tried the book with my now 6 months old son and I have the luck to have found two excellent yoga practitioners in UK and Spain. The way they work with the kid is nothing but fantastic: gentle movements and streching, sounds and songs. It is a pleasure to see this people working with the kid (and I find this very therapeutical for myself too).

I think this is a fantastic idea, unfortunately, my son is now wearing a cast for the next three months as his left hip was completelly dislocated. We can only work with him at this time on his upper limbs neck and eye movements...
