Yoga for kids with special needs

  1.  If you are looking for a way to bring calm and to build stamina for folks with special needs, watch this video and read the                                                                                                   article just published in the Chicago Tribune: Yoga offers benefits for people with special needs  As one of the teachers recognizes, “The beauty of yoga is that it helps you wherever you are at,” said Fakroddin.  Gadi Revivo, a pediatrician who specializes in rehabilitation, says that even though yoga is thousands of years old, it brings something new to his special-needs patients. Listen to the video and look through the article for a lot of good information and links to more programs.
