Connection Corner

The “Connection Corner” lists therapists (SLP, OT, PT, Psychologists, Social Workers, Special Education Teachers, Nurses, etc…) and other Adapted Yoga Specialists who do kids yoga/kids wellness, their website or blog & social media sites. It’s fairly easy to find other kids yoga teachers but from my experience it is much more difficult to find folks doing adapted yoga & other therapists who incorporate yoga into their work.

Folks are listed in alphabetical order by first name. This is a free listing for the purpose of helping folks connect with each other and share ideas.

I’m NOT listing e-mail addresses at this point since I’m concerned about spammers or hackers then using that info to send e-mails that look like they are from me or one of the other folks on the list.

 Look for this “training” icon next to folks who periodically offer trainings or workshops related to yoga for kids with special needs.

Feel free to e-mail me at if you would like to be added, deleted or your info needs to be updated :)
