Overview/what you learn on the course/syllabus:

Yotism is a training school and the founder of a unique specialised sensory Yoga method, designed to enhance the lives of those with ASC (Autism Spectrum Condition) symptoms. It is a powerful, profound and practical technique that aids children and adults on the autistic spectrum. It fuses together elegantly, our modern age scientific understanding of movement, the brain and neuro-sensory systems, with the ancient healing art of yoga.

The training is based on using adapted asanas, neuro-sensory techniques, breathing, meditation and relaxation to meet the needs of Autism.

You will gain a wealth of knowledge in Autism and the underpinning neuro-science.
Experience and understand in greater depth how yoga positively affects your own brain, body, sensory systems, nervous system, emotional expression and sense of calm.
Learn a clear outline structure for practice and teaching methods.
How to relate this to all individuals.
How to trust and work with the power of your own intuition as a yoga practitioner.

Foundation Course:
This is a three day, 24 hour, training module. Each day is structured in a way to offer quality training, education, practical application, mentoring and awareness building of yoga as a tool for supporting someone on the autism spectrum. This course will introduce you to the natural, therapeutic intervention of adapted yoga and provide you with the direct tools to teach.

Introduction to Yoga and ASD
Yoga and your own Neurology
Brain neurology and greater understanding of spectrum differences
Practical and theoretical understanding of Autism and body-brain integration
Practical on Yo’tism sequences and techniques

About the Teachers:
The course is run by Nicole Zimbler and Veronika Pena who have both spent their life career immersed in yoga and therapeutics.

Nicole has 15 years experience in specialised yoga therapy and training, she is an Integrative Developmental Therapist and autism specialist providing a range of therapies to children and adults on the spectrum or those seeking better neuro-development and healing.

“One of the reasons for loving the nature of therapeutic work is that each person I work with, child or adult, has an individual personal uniqueness with extensive abilities and unknown potential. When this potential starts to communicate itself, release, and changes are made, whether that be through the neurological, physical or emotional. Magic Happens!”

Veronika is a Yoga Teacher specialising in Early Years development, Pregnancy, Mother and Child and Adult neuro-sensory Yoga.

As a Yogi elder, the years of experience and intuitive knowledge skill building has been vital to enhance my work with teaching yoga to those on the spectrum, from babies with minute developmental differences to adults with management difficulties.

“I am also fulfilling my life’s dreams and mission by being here to share and experience this knowledge building training with you.”
