Yoga Me Fit Unites with Aiden’s Wagon to Host Autism Awareness in Forsyth Park.
I am so excited to join Kimberly Turpin of Aiden’s Wagon, a non-profit organization that is committed to enriching the lives of individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
I have worked with Autistic and Asperger children teaching techniques and practices to address sensory processing. Yoga therapy practices for hyper/hypo sensitivity for sensory integration, self regulation and self acceptance.
Finding balance in the opposites is harmonious, pure and peaceful. This is one of the many great practices that yoga teaches. Autistic Spectrum Disorders is very unique as each child has different ranges and variables. Yoga when applied as therapy addresses the whole person which involves many systems of the Mind Body Complex. When applied properly all systems involved will function optimally.
I was honored when asked if I would lead the children in two yoga practice sessions and speak about how yoga therapy can support children with Autism.
Yoga Therapy when applied and practiced will refine and tune your five senses along with spatial concepts and functions of your internal landscape. The interoception system of the body must function to avoid frustrations and melt-downs.
Yoga Therapy training sessions consist of internal and external awareness and functions, including breathing practices, physical postures, mindfulness practices, visualization, focus, concentration, meditation, interoception awareness skills and relaxation.
Mindfulness practices and guided meditations activate the insula, the center of interoception. This facilitates the release of emotions, reduces stress, promotes well-being and health while increasing compassionate behavior toward others.
A successful yoga therapy program for (ASD) is to know the whole child since yoga is about becoming whole in mind, body and spirit. Gathering the history, predisposition, preferences, understanding the child’s learning styles will have a significant impact on the child’s behaviors, social and communication skills while reducing anxiety and increasing self-esteem.
Aiden’s Wagon provides support and empowerment to families; creates comprehensive programs designed to promote and enhance the lives of anyone impacted by Autism, engages in fundraising efforts to increase awareness in the community as well as lessen the burden of families with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
They provide assistance for therapeutic devices and therapy sessions as well as support for families with individuals living with autism. Some of their services include coffee and conversation, sibling connection and family enrichment.
I believe there is a lack of Autism awareness and education in managing neurological and developmental disorders. Yoga Therapy sessions are very powerful and impactful in managing this neurological and developmental disorder. The practices will facilitate self-healing resulting in less or no medicines, relieving pain and suffering, doctors visits while managing or curing diseases.
Lynn is a master teacher. Her teaching style is deeply respectful of the practice, seasoned by years of experience, and informed by her knowledge in a wide array of disciplines: anatomy and physiology, fitness, many different styles of yoga, and also the deeper elements of philosophy, mantra, and Ayurveda. She really lives her yoga–mind, body, and spirit, and offers that integration to all whom she works with.
Lynn is an extremely knowledgeable yogi and a great teacher. I appreciate her philosophical wisdom as well as her teaching ability.
Lynn is a great teacher.
Lynn is certified in several distinct and diverse practices, honest to a fault, hard-working, and enjoys her ability to impart her knowledge with others…
Lynn knows how to help one reconnect with their body in the most playful way. She is extremely knowledgeable in alignment and how our bodies work. I personally recommend her work to anyone. If you have the chance to work with Lynn, take it!
I highly recommend Yoga Me Fit for your yoga needs. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff in a comfortable and inviting setting. Great if you are looking for a fun healthy way to unwind or even just to feel better and more energetic.
You truly were a godsend to me during my health crisis time back in Savannah. I haven’t had that kind of opening up of the mind and body since then. Thank you for all you did for me! Namaste, Kathleen
Working with Lynn was one of the best things I ever did. She got to know what my body needed in order to become stronger and leaner. Due to her expertise and guidance, I had more energy, strength, and endurance. I highly recommend her and am happy to talk with anyone who wishes to discuss further. Lynn can give you my phone number upon request.
I have been SO amazed at the strength, balance, and flexibility I have gained through yoga training with Lynn!!! Never a flexible child, I got even stiffer with years of wearing high heels, but, with time and practice, I recently did a BACKBEND- yes, really!! Yoga is truly a journey, and I can hardly wait to see where it take me next! Practicing yoga for 2 years, age 50-ish.
My testimonial: Impressive knowledge of applied anatomy, Lynn has been instrumental in helping me rehab after several injuries. Her yoga classes are intense physical workouts mixed with an upbeat Anusara philosophy that brings calmness into my day and the improvement in body and mind keeps me coming back to class.
I knew Lynn Geddes Wolling about 20 years ago when she was an aerobics instructor. Last fall, it was my good luck to attend an Anusara yoga class taught by Lynn and a whole new world opened up to me. I’ve been coming back ever since. Lynn’s passion for teaching, energizing, and empowering her yoga students is unparalleled. Through her, a whole new world has opened to me. It is a world that allows me to expand my physical and spiritual boundaries, to become grounded and centered, to bond with other students in the class, and to continue on an exciting journey. Thanks to Lynn and her enthusiastic teaching skills, I am increasing my physical strength and practicing yoga poses that I never thought would be possible. This is a thrilling adventure!
When I started with Lynn I was out of shape and lacking flexibility, but Lynn’s enthusiasm, excellent instruction and the warm atmosphere of the classes helped me to keep on through the challenges. And I always felt great, especially after the class was completed! That was probably three years ago, now I’m a regular at Lynn’s group classes and have an individual session with Lynn once a week. I’m 47 and was starting to feel some twinges in the joints, I’d complained to my doctor about some hip pain, but through my regular yoga practice my hip pain and joint twinges are now gone. I’m still no athlete, nor at my ideal weight, but I am stronger and feel much better because of my regular yoga practice. I’d like to particularly recommend individual sessions with Lynn. Each session, designed to meet my needs, deepens my practice. I’ve learned how to approach familiar poses given the quirks and particular challenges of my body, making my practice easier, safer and more effective. I’ve also learned new poses and modifications to add to my home practice. The whole experience, but particularly the one-on-one sessions, was a confidence-builder. Lynn is an excellent instructor and coach: knowledgeable, creative and encouraging. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
Lynn Geddes Wolling is a Master Teacher!! She truly TEACHES yoga, not just lead a class. She explains the mechanisms of the body systems as she demonstrates a pose and breaks down each pose into doable parts to guide your experience at your personal fitness level! I am so thankful to have found her ! Regardless of your experience with yoga ( I had NONE!), she inspires each student to strive for their personal best!
Beautiful Lynn, Practicing with, and learning from you was a high point for me in Savannah. It feels great to be in the Northeast again. I know that “wherever I go, there you are,” but, in all my travels, there have always been some places that I just feel resonant with and others I don’t. This one I do. The awakening of Savannah did not feel like an endeavor I could get my heart behind, but I see you doing it, with much wisdom and without ego. All blessings to you!
