Ashrams for Autism: Teacher Training

OCTOBER, 2022

Yoga Plus Magazine - Yoga Reaches Out - People doing yoga at Gillette stadium

If you’re an autistic individual, a teacher or yoga teacher, a family member, a medical professional, or support staff looking to empower people on the autism spectrum, you probably already know that individuals with autism have very different sensory experiences from other people. The responses to these experiences often cause their bodies to get stuck in fight, flight, or freeze modes that divert blood from the digestive organs to the skeletal muscles. This activity results in disrupted digestion, increased heart rate, and shallower breathing—all of which readily provoke anxiety.

But if you’re here, you probably also know that the science of yoga has been proven to empower and guide people on the autism spectrum toward peacefully achieving their highest potential.

In fact, a 2012 study published in The American Journal of Occupational Therapy comparing children with autism who did yoga each day at school compared to kids who followed a typical routine instead, found that those who participated in yoga exhibited significantly less aggressive behavior, social withdrawal and hyperactivity.
