Yoga for the Special Child® Basic 1 Program is mandatory before attending Basic Part 2 Program.
To be completed before attending the Basic Program Part 2:
Teach 4 half hour classes to a child or group of children, and record the last class for presentation at Basic 2. A ny age from 0 to 18 is fine, but you are encouraged to teach older children since that is the focus of the Basic 2. Bring the recorded class to the Basic 2 so that it can be played in Windows Media Player or in Quick Time.
The course begins Tuesday, June 24th at 8:00 a.m. and ends Monday, June 30th at 1:00p.m. The Program outline is attached.
