Event description

Description

PALS, CARD and the UCF Institute of Exercise Physiology & Wellness, UCF CARD, are starting the New Year out with an amazing collaborative series of Family Yoga classes for the entire family! Classes will be provided on Saturday's in the Teaching Academy Building at UCF for individuals that are between the ages of 8-14 registered with CARD.

Class dates are: 2/24, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, 3/24, 3/31, 4/7, 4/14, 4/21, 4/28, 5/5, 5/12, 5/19, 5/26 and 6/2. All classes will be held on the UCF Campus in the Teaching Academy Building (Beside Parking Garage A).

Classes will be held from 2:00PM-2:45PM. While your child is in class, parents can participate in a separate parent class along with siblings that are age 10 or older to learn the same skills as your child with ASD. Younger siblings (9 and under) will play games and watch movies with PALS Facilitators as supervisors.

A general class layout will include: A short creative mindful project, Basic yoga asanas (postures), Basic breathing exercises, Mantras/mudras (8 limb link), and Final relaxation. This is a low intensity form of activity with periodic interludes of moderate intensity physical activity, depending upon the participant needs and abilities, and will focus on mind-body awareness.

This series is for individuals registered with the UCF Center for Autism and Related Disabilities between the ages of 8-14. Must meet certain criteria to participate: able to separate from parents, can follow verbal commands, toilet themselves and work in a small group.

We ask for a commitment of attending 14 out of the 15 sessions enabling you and your family to get the most out of the yoga program. A special yoga demonstration will be at the Hearts for Autism Walk on February 17th at Paul J. Hagerty High School; more info to come, and this class is included with each registration.

The registration tuition for the 15 session yoga program values at $600. Thanks to the UCF Institute of Exercise Physiology & Wellness & PALS, the program tuition will be $50.00 (per family). This is to paid to UCF through the Toni Jenkins Exceptional Education Institute. Please make checks out to the Toni Jenkins Exceptional Education Institute or bring $50.00 cash on the first day of class. We ask that either the cash or the checks are in an envelope marked with your child's name. If you need financial assistance, please email Lindsiann at lindsiann.taylor@ucf.edu for further information about this.

All diagnostic documentation must be on file with UCF CARD.
