Private Group Yoga Sessions

mind body connectYoga Born Owner, Dawn Greenfield was handpicked to work with MARC because she has been teaching people, not disabilities since 2005.

Yoga Born Private Group Sessions for MARC Community Resources has been a success since 2014, South Windsor, CT.MARC love 2

Each session is customized to help those within this special needs community feel encouraged and always able to participate.

There are warm up poses and breathing to help participants become more aware of their bodies. Each movement provides them with the ability to notice what feels good for their body. Practicing this is a great tool to becoming more able to positively cope when they start to feel anxious or upset.MARC love

Yoga is far from purely physical the combination of movement, soothing music, breath focus and self reflection activates the brain’s emotional region. This encourages them to develop awareness of their own emotions and those of others. Soothing music is a tool that the encourages attention and calming to create a comfortable environment.  This group includes but is not limited to yoga for down syndrome, yoga for autistic, yoga for deaf, yoga for MARC.

Regular participation has improved strength and flexibility, and an overall increasing sense of peace.

Yoga develops motor skills. MARC love 1Those with autism frequently experience delayed motor development, which can be improved as yoga tones muscles, enhances balance and stability, and develops body awareness and coordination.
