Services

Services provided by abilitYoga include the following: 
  • Evaluation: to determine the appropriate yoga program for placing an individual with special needs. The evaluation process includes a questionnaire to be filled out by parents or care-givers relating to the individual's medical and learning history, followed by an evaluation of their motor-skills.
  • Individual treatment sessions: Typically, the provider works directly with the participant in individual sessions. Once the routine is familiar, the individual may be moved to an appropriate group setting, if one is available.
  • Group treatment sessions: Once an individual is ready, he or she is "mainstreamed" into an appropriate group setting. 
The teaching method in general is non-competitive, getting each individual to perform at his or her personal best with emphasis on harmony and cooperation while developing self-confidence and mutual trust.
