Yoga for the Special Child, The Sonia Sumar Method® is a comprehensive program of yoga techniques designed to enhance the natural development of children with special needs.
It is designed to work in partnership with physical, occupational, speech, or any other therapies your child is currently undergoing. Every child is special, and no label can define a child’s potential. We treat each child as an individual, addressing their specific needs. Each child learns and grows at their own pace, improving as they are able, when they are ready. Improvements that can come from Yoga for the Special Child include:
- better communication skills
- increased fine motor coordination
- increased flexibility
- increased strength
- improved posture
- increased ability to calm oneself

Evaluation sessions include a parental interview detailing the child’s health history and a session with the child. Two hours are allotted for evaluation sessions.
