Creating Accessible, Affirming and  Neuro-Inclusive Yoga Spaces with Kristen Shuman

In this 90-minute workshop, Kristen Shuman will share from both their personal and professional experiences as an Autistic yoga teacher and psychotherapist, offering participants an opportunity to learn how to make their yoga classes more accessible and affirming for neurodiverse practitioners, including those on the Autism spectrum. They will share important considerations related to vocabulary, diverse sensory needs, appropriate support for emotional regulation, the specific impacts ableism, the potential psychological and physical benefits of yoga for neurodiverse people, and other considerations the Westernized yoga model typically doesn’t take into account.

Incorporating lecture, a short, accessible Yin practice, and time for reflection and questions, this workshop aims to present opportunities for interactivity and engagement, while also reserving the option for participants to simply listen and/or remain off camera if that is their preference.

Recommended props: any props that will help you feel supported for a short, accessible, Yin-style asana practice, plus a journal or preferred device for recording notes and personal reflections.
