Yoga for Youth with Differing Needs and Unexpected Life Changes, covers the foundations of working with youth who experience differences such as autism, sensory processing challenges, ADHD, emotional disturbance, trauma, and other cognitive, emotional, and physical challenges.

In this training, Yoga for Youth with Differing Needs and Unexpected Life Changes, we are including information and practices to support parents and teachers who may be encountering new challenges because of COVID-19: increased anxiety, depression, difficulties with focus and concentration, and reduction in social interaction, ruminating with fear.
