Benefits of Yoga with Kids in ABA Therapy

In an effort to continually improve Hopebridge therapies, we started a yoga program with our Marion clinic ABA clients. Brenda Simpson will be instructing our classes once a week. Yoga is great for group instruction, balance, coordination, and sensory processing.

Some benefits to yoga for children in ABA therapy: (via childrensyoga.com)

  • BREATH to enhance self-regulation, modulation and organization as well as supporting respiration for language
  • MOVEMENT to improve motor planning, balance, coordination, strength and flexibility
  • MEDITATION / RELAXATION to decrease stress and promote stillness of the mind for increased attention and ability to focus
