Relax in A State of Happiness for Autistic Kids

Have you ever had the chance to work with autistic kids on and off the yoga mat?

Autism affects about 1 in 45 children, ages 3 through 17 in the USA.

I have had the amazing opportunity to work with autistic kids through wonderful organizations in the Bay Area called

Turn About For Autism &  Jeena.

 

Ever since my first yoga class with my first Jeena yogi, Yash, I have learned so much about myself and yoga.

Every session, I see the power of yoga transmitted through the students I work with. My heart is filled with joy and gratitude when I see simple breathing exercise I share with the kids help them to connect with their inner self and stay calm within it. The relaxed and smiling faces I see during and at the end of each class are the best rewards I can ask for as a yoga teacher.

Yoga poses help kids to discovery new motor skills and body sensations which in turn helps them gain self-esteem and self-understanding. For special needs kid, it also helps to melt away the stress and anxiety in a way that allows them to be the master of their own senses.

 

I often ask my students how they are feeling after each class, and the answer I get most often is

"I feel happy".

 

When I hear that from the Jeena kids, I know it is a

true expression of feeling from the heart

and I am in return the happiest and proudest yoga teacher because of it
