CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
Giving differently-abled children a chance to feel good and make friends.
Children with special needs ARE A VALUABLE AND VITAL PART OF OUR COMMUNITY, BUT THEY face particular difficulty to be included in mainstream activities or settings. Many children in Hong Kong with learning difficulties OR developmental DISORDERS HAVE LIMITED ACCESS TO support services OR WELLBEING SERVICES. YOGA IS BECOMING A RELEVANT FORM OF THERAPY TODAY, PROVEN TO HELP ENHANCE physical, social and emotional wellbeing FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES.
Monday Group Class
Our open classes on a Monday are by donation and are open to children with a range of special needs
Every Monday we host a number of classes for children with special needs. These classes are offered on a pay-as-you-wish basis. Children from all ages and backgrounds gather together at Platform's Event Space to enjoy a wonderful group class of yoga and meditation. For students that are not suited for a group class, we offer yoga therapy sessions on a one-to-one basis.
Our aim is to provide individualised attention in a group setting, so the students not only receive physical benefits of yoga, but being part of a classroom environment develops their social and emotional wellbeing as well.
4:00-4:45pm - Yoga for Children with Special Needs Group Class
5:00-5:45pm - Yoga for Children with Special Needs Group Class
6:00-6:45pm - Accessible Yoga (Chair / Wheelchair) for Adults with Disability
Private Yoga Therapy - One-to-one for Children not suited for group classes
For each class, we need one lead teacher + a number of assistant teachers. Our expenses are as follows:
2x Teacher + 2x Assistant Fees: $3450 / day
Venue hire sponsorship: $1500 / day
Insurance & logistics: $1375 / day
Monthly Sponsorship: $25,300
We use the contributions that come in from these classes to help offset our expenses. Contributions range from $600-$1600 each day, so it’s not enough to cover our expenses.
