Quest for Excellence – Seeking Answers from YOU
Quest for Excellence is a new installment on Young Yoga Masters. My teacher, Tulshi Sen, encourages students to ask questions when they have them because every question is a quest, and every quest has a question. When we question, we become seekers.
Now you can help others on a quest by sharing your knowledge and experience. Here’s the first question:
Archer Pose: Sets the Mark for Excellence
I have been approached by a mom of 4 children to practice yoga with her 11 year old daughter (ADHD) and her 9 year old son(Cerebral Palsy).I would just like some input on class curriculum for their specific needs.
Thank you in advance for anticipated response,
Gisele – CCYT
Thanks Gisele for the question. I don’t have any experience teaching kids’ with Cerebral Palsy. But I do know there are many great teachers reading who may have this experience or have worked with kids with ADHD. Now this is the part where you the reader step up to help in our Quest? Leave a comment below and tell us:
