YogAutism™ helps transform high-stress reactions into peaceful responses

YogAutism is a technique that does more than just provide relaxation and calming like a typical yoga session would. It helps connect people to their bodies and their breath resulting in lower stress responses.

Why Yoga for People with Autism?

Yoga has long been known to improve strength, flexibility and breathing in the general population. YogAutism helps connect people to their bodies and their breath and supports sensory integration. This integration is necessary for the regulation of one's nervous system. Because autism often accompanies a different experience to sensory stimuli the body often gets stuck in a ‘fight, flight or freeze’ response . "The Recipe" unlocks the body's grip on the muscles that inhibit a full, diaphragmatic breath. This is important because when the body is able to take a full breath the vagus nerve is stimulated and reduces stress by telling the body it's safe and results in a reduction in cortisol levels, which is among the primary expressions of stress.
