Elissa is such a blessing to our family. Our two children who were exposed to extreme trauma and neglect in their early lives were suffering from its effects. I was desperate to find something that would help them. I turned to Elissa’s kids yoga classes because I was told about her extensive background in working with kids with special needs. We noticed a positive difference after the first class!! Not only did she teach them yoga, but she also taught them how to interact with others, how to be sensitive and kind and how to regulate their emotions. They looked forward to class every week and spoke often about what they learned. Each week, it was clear that Elissa had a plan for the class and catered to the needs of each student. As a family, we now have many tools to work through difficult feelings and to help form positive relationships with others. It’s amazing how the body and mind work together and Elissa has the keys to unlock so much positivity!

Special Needs Movement & Mindfulness

Our small group movement & mindfulness classes & private sessionsare great for kids who struggle with communication and/or have difficulty navigating social situations. Classes incorporate social skills instruction intended to help kids develop tools to have successful peer to peer interactions while developing a stronger sense of self. Included in the classes are...

  • Activities that provide sensory stimulation often thought of as a pathway to learning.
  • Strategies that will help your child successfully regulate their emotions and self calm in stressful situations.
  • Activities, movements, and postures that promote increased attention span, memory, motor coordination, strengthened muscle tone, and much more.
  • Breathing and relaxation techniques that are intended to help bring your child a sense of awareness about their bodies.
  • Songs and vocal exercises that will improve communication, increase self-expression, and develop social skills.


 All are welcome. Your child will develop a toolbox of skills that can easily be transferred into the classroom, anxious doctor visits, and every day living activities. This program is beneficial for children with physical, cognitive and social communication deficits, which may include disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Autism, ADHD and other emotional and behavioral challenges.
