Over the course of the workshop, you will learn:

  • Simple yoga stretching practices as well as some breathing and meditation techniques to help you get the most out of the mind/body connection with Barrie Overend, overendyoga@gmail.com

“When my middle son, Sean, was diagnosed with ASD at four years old, I became a little less confident in the world around me. Now, at nineteen and having recently walked at his graduation to receive his Career and Employment Credential, I am able to look back and marvel at the ups and downs that marked this journey. I have come to personally understand the feelings of insecurity and exhaustion that are present and that result in emotional and physical burnout. And so, I wanted to find a way to serve and support other special needs moms on this same journey in embracing the importance of self-care. The result is A Balanced You!”– Program creator Theresa DeMarco
