Exercise and Personal Training

1-2-1 yoga sessions available for now adults and children/teens with Yoga with Debs Classes starting in the new year.

Each session is tailored to you. If you’ve never done yoga before, we’ll start with some breathing practices and work through some fundamental yoga postures, alignment and progress the practice from there. No rush, no pressure. Each class is slightly different depending on how you’re feeling and what you’d like to get out of it.

Why book 1-2-1 yoga class? You may like to:

  • have a 1-1 before starting regular classes
  • develop your existing practice
  • work therapeutically according to your needs
  • learn more about relaxation techniques

Debs is trained to teach all ages from babies to adults and has additional training in teaching yoga to children with additional needs.

Exercises for your own individual abilities. Including seated workouts for those who may struggle.

Deborah Grossman

Yoga for children with additional needs includes the classical yoga practices of movement, breathing, deep relaxation combined with sound, rhythm, massage and sensory integration techniques.

Having completed training with Special Needs Yoga my understanding is that we can help take children out of their stressed state and help them move into a relaxed state that creates the optimum condition and possibility for positive change.

Simply starting by meeting every child with a pure intention to create a practice that encourages them to reach their fullest potential and celebrating the strength within each child we work from there.

The benefits can include:

  • Improving motor control and motor planning skills
  • Developing physical strength, muscle tone and balance
  • Promoting flexibility and correcting postural misalignment
  • Increasing self-awareness
  • Establishing calm, organised mental states
  • Improve concentration
  • Reduce hyperactivity
  • Relieve respiratory ailments
  • Develop the ability to relax
  • Release tension
  • Reduce fear, frustration and stress
  • Enrich the quality and quantity of sleep

Movement Based Learning techniques are incorporated in the yoga sessions with the children to develop a a personalised movement program that will enhance a more integrated way of learning. This will allow for the child to accomplish his goals in life with greater ease – the goal may be walking, talking, self-feeding, reading with ease, organizing classroom tasks, relating to peers or learning to self-regulate behaviors.
