YOGA FOR SCLERODERMA: In 2002 Kathy Randolph began to apply the techniques of Yoga for the Special Child® to Scleroderma, which she presents at Scleroderma Foundation conferences and chapter and support group meetings around the U.S. In 2003 the Texas Bluebonnet Chapter of the Scleroderma Foundation made a generous grant to produce Yoga for Scleroderma in video and DVD, distributed by the Scleroderma Foundation. In 2004 Kathy presented her research paper Yoga for Scleroderma as part of her certification qualifications, click here to read “Yoga for Scleroderma”. In 2010 the Texas Bluebonnet Chapter and the Scleroderma Foundation each made generous grants to produce Assisted Yoga for Scleroderma, a 2 DVD set, distributed by the Scleroderma Foundation. In 2015 Sonia Sumar, creator of Yoga for the Special Child®, the basis for Yoga for Scleroderma, gave her approval and blessing to the new Yoga for Scleroderma Online project, which will make all of Yoga for Scleroderma and Assisted Yoga for Scleroderma available online for free, reaching those the farthest away and with the fewest resources.

In 2015 Sonia Sumar asked Kathy to teach a Yoga for the Special Child® Continuing Education Program for Arthritis and Scleroderma. This training, open to those who have completed the Yoga for the Special Child® Basic 1 Program, will expand the Yoga for Scleroderma program by providing more practitioners who can serve the Scleroderma community in person.
