Hi! I am Samara and I teach yoga to children, teenagers and young adults. Yoga offers techniques for developing and sustaining physical, emotional, mental and spiritual awareness. It is building this kind of awareness that I believe prepares children for a happy life.
I am currently specialising in working with children on the autism spectrum. I teach yoga based on kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and the Son-Rise programme principles – a child centred developmental play techniques for children on the autism spectrum.
‘All the kids loved it. I asked them what was their favourite thing today and they all chose yoga. Roma even said that she wanted to become a yoga teacher and asked if that was your career and what she needed to do to become a yoga teacher. She said that you have been very nice and wanted you to come again next week.
I was extremely surprised about her being so excited about something. This is the first time she actually loves an activity!’
