Yoga: The New Autism Therapy

Many American’s have caught on to the yoga craze, including myself and many of my friends. Why? Because its relaxing, fun and makes you more attune to your body, while building strength and flexibility. When I learned that yoga teachers were offering classes for children with autism (not too common, but hopefully there will be more!), it made complete sense to me, because there are so many benefits. First, many children with autism are constantly moving, have a lack of coordination control and low muscle tone.
