Working With Autism
It was clear that yoga was helping her daughter navigate challenges and find calmness in a world that Kerri often finds overstimulating and overwhelming. Manner, who received certification as a teacher by Yoga Alliance, began teaching the techniques to other children with autism and staff at schools and centers. Her non-profit organization, Ashrams for Autism, has conducted programs at facilities in New Jersey and New York for the past ten years. Now she is bringing training programs to caretakers, staff, and parents in the Catskills, in conjunction with educator Marc Rosenbaum, who has taught parenting skills to over 5000 New York City residents and teachers through the city schools.
