Üphoria Yoga is excited to announce the addition of üshine ASD (3-5’s) & ücalm ASD (6-12’s), designed specifically for autistic children.
These new small-group programs led by Emma Basky offer a fun and accessible introduction to yoga, tailored to meet the needs of all participants.
Yoga has been shown to have a number of benefits for individuals on the autism spectrum including increased flexibility, coordination, balance, relaxation and nervous system regulation, and self-awareness.
Our studio space has been designed with diverse sensory needs in mind and is adaptable in order to provide a relaxing experience.
A social story about attending yoga classes and a list of poses with visuals to practice at home (if interested) will be sent out before the start of the series.
üshine ASD I preschoolers 3-5
A fun and dynamic introduction to yoga, designed specifically for preschoolers on the autism spectrum. In this series, your child will explore yoga poses and explorative movement, learning through song and play. Classes include relaxation and mindfulness techniques using child-friendly props and an opportunity for “quiet time”. We set your preschooler up for success by encouraging self-awareness, teaching self-regulation strategies, and creating opportunities for motor skill development. Parents are welcome to join in on the fun.
