Dedicated to providing yoga in schools and facilities for the autism and special needs community

Ashrams for Autism seeks to empower and guide the autism community toward peacefully achieving their highest potential through yoga. We firmly believe that yoga can provide the proper tools for self-regulation and empowerment for this population.


We are excited to share that we have partnered with Jade Yoga and Yoga Journal in creating a video series that provides yoga to individuals with autism and lecture-based tools on coping with worry, fostering acceptance and building positive communication for their caregivers.
