Yoga for Autism

Liza Chinery

 BA(Hons) PGCE Dip SEN  

I am a qualified special needs teacher and practitioner with over twenty years of special needs experience, I am trained in delivering yoga to a range of children and young people with specialised needs such as; Autism, ADHD and anxiety issues. 

I use a multisensory approach incorporating body awareness, relaxation exercises, grounding and breathing techniques in a comfortable and welcoming environment. 

My aim is to support children and young people with special educational needs to learn strategies to regulate their emotions, to raise self-esteem, develop physical strength, balance, co-ordination and enhance wellbeing and mental health. 

I am passionate about looking holistically at each child and tailoring each session to individual needs and likes incorporating visual resources, Makaton and sensory equipment where required to meet the needs of each child.

Small group or 1:1 yoga session available.
