Better motor skills lead to more academic achievements, further independence, and a more fulfilling life. You know this. That's why you're here. You want the best for your students, but finding fun and motivating activities that they can do is difficult. There isn't a ton of time to try all of the tricks and figure out what works or what doesn't work. You want a clear plan of action to help your students become more independent, successful, and fulfilled in their lives.

A happy place to get your learn on. I often post blogs and/or vlogs with helpful tips and activities to help make your student's lives better and your job easier.

How does yoga help kids with disabilities?
Improve Mobility Skills
From motor planning to spatial awareness, yoga increases children's mobility skills from the ground up. We focus on concepts such as up/down, left/right, moving our bodies in new ways, and feeling confident in the movements that we take. As we move, our brains memorize these new patterns and begin to incorporate them in our daily lives.
Improve Literacy Skills
Yoga is a fun and motivating way to infuse literacy in to your child's learning! We can get creative by using Braille lists, writing yoga stories, and using yoga cards to improve literacy skills.
Improve Social Skills
Social skills are important for any child. Yoga helps children increase their social skills by infusing greetings, yoga social stories, and leadership skills in to fun and engaging classes!
