Integrated Yoga: Yoga with a Sensory Integrative ApproachISBN: 9781843108627
Practicing yoga involves being calm and focussed and having heightened awareness of the body's functions and movements. For children with sensory processing needs who either have low sensory thresholds and are overwhelmed by sensory stimulation, or have high thresholds and do not register stimulation yoga can be hugely beneficial. This book presents easy-to-follow basic postures and sequences for children of different ages and which can be easily adapted for adults. Nicole Cuomo gives practical advice for how to choose appropriate sequences according to the child's particular needs and mood, knowing that yoga will be most beneficial when it is fun! She also includes photographs of each posture to supplement her descriptions. This practical book provides a wealth of ideas for therapists, educators and parents to help their children with sensory processing needs.
