Through the practice of Yoga, children with some kind of functional diversity or special needs, learn playfully to concentrate, to improve their motor skills, to train their sense of balance, as well as to reinforce their health and fitness.
The emotional state and his social group behavior is also improved.
Yoga also allows improving your self-confidence, self-esteem and in addition to being beneficial, it is fun.
In this discipline, you do not have to fight, exceed limits or try to be like the others. The principles of non-competition, self-respect and acceptance of the practice of Yoga allow children to relax and perceive their autonomy and abilities. In the course of a session, young people learn to be as they are, to be taken into account, while recognizing their potential and limits.
Union, integration, inclusion … These are some of the meanings of the word Yoga and with which the Yogaespecial Association plays to fulfill its objective: “to bring the benefits of this practice closer to groups with some functional diversity and their families”.
Its purpose is that this experience facilitates the process of social integration and the physical and psychological improvement of these people.
The objective is to connect with the total human being, and once the link has been established, unleash their full potential, emphasizing what they CAN do and not their limitations.
