Why Yoga Therapy ?

Yoga TherapyYoga uses the effect the mind has to balance the physical performance with the calm and serenity of positive thought patterns.

The word “yoga” means oneness and unity or being part of something bigger (Faulds, 2006). The unity refers to the link between the body, mind, and spirit (Feldman, 2005). The aim of any yoga practice is to connect a balance between the mind and body through a series of poses and breathing techniques (Feldman, 2005).

Yoga uses the effect the mind has to balance the physical performance with the calm and serenity of positive thought patterns.

This interconnectedness works to reduce stress and anxiety (Williamson, 2013). This can benefit all individuals but can be essential for individuals on the autism spectrum.

Yoga TherapyPostures to increase concentration.

Asanas work on the muscles and the joints, creating space within the body’s structure to help increase circulation and improve flexibility. The physical functioning becomes more integrated and less stressful.

Postures to improve blood flow to the head : Postures like Viparitkarani, Sarvangasana, Matsyasana, Halasana and Suptavajrasana alternating with standing postures such as Padahastasana, Trikonasana, Padangushtasana helps to increase blood flow to the head region and may help to activate the brain cells. Balasana or Nikunjasana, Mehruasana and Dharmikasana are also useful.

Postures to increase concentration: One legged balancing postures such as Vrikshasana, Rathacharya, Natarajasana and Ekapada Asana are useful to improve concentration. Children have to be helped by the parent or the instructor to maintain these postures.

Postures to improve confidence and the body stance: Back bending postures such as Bhujangasana, Ushtrasana, Chakrasana, Dhanurasana that opens the shoulders and the chest region are useful for improving their self confidence and also their body stance. Simhasana improves stammering, stuttering and some ear, nose and throat defects of the children. Pavanamukta Asana is an enjoyable practice too.

Thus starting from simple movements and dynamic postures, they can be slowly led on to the static postures, the concept of Sthira and Sukha, thereby satisfied gradually. Demonstration is more effective than the explanation. (This holds good for all the Yogic Techniques). Postures are tailored as per the ability of the individual child.

Pranayama of Yoga Therapy ?

Yoga TherapyNada Pranayamas such as Pranava and Bhramari can help to normalize the brain function

Pranayama controls and regulates breathing and is very beneficial for the autistic. This technique particularly improves the stamina, balance and strength, along with inducing better sleep by the improved circulation of the Vital Energy.

Good breathing can also help release deeply held physical and emotional tension within the body. Pranayama helps in controlling fits which may be common among these children.

Sounds of animals make it interesting for them to perform. Kukkriya Pranayama, (dog panting breath) is an all time favorite with children. Mathangi Pranayama, Vyagraha Pranayama with Cheeri and Sharabha Kriya. Others like Kapalabhati is also very useful (for the slow dull students and not the hyperactive ones). The Shitali and Sitkari Pranayama are useful practices to help those with difficulty in speech.

Nada Pranayamas such as Pranava and Bhramari can help to normalize the brain function while Nadi Shuddhi can pacify the children and enhance the right-left brain coordination. Chandra Nadi Pranayama and Surya Nadi Pranayama can be used depending on whether we need to work on activating/relaxing the children and also depending on which brain function needs to be improved. Right nostril works on left brain and left nostril on right brain. Mukha Bhastrika is also known as the ‘cleansing breath’ helps remove old, stagnant air from the lungs and cleanses the bloodstream of excess carbon dioxide. Its practice also decreases response time and enhances memory and comprehension. Research also suggests that it is useful in combating learning disorders, A.D.D., and mental retardation. (Bhavanani AB et al., 2003).

It may also be of value to train mentally retarded children who have prolonged Reaction Time.
