I want to take a moment to share my personal journey as a mother of a beautiful 11-year-old son named Curwood, who is Autistic. Throughout this journey, I have experienced both challenges and blessings that have shaped my understanding of the unique needs and struggles faced by families with autistic children. It is this profound understanding that has ignited a deep passion within me—a passion to create a positive change and provide support to other mothers and families who face similar hurdles.


DO YOGA FOR AUTISM AWARENESS is not just a program; it is a heartfelt commitment that stems from my personal experiences and the desire to make a difference in the lives of autistic children and their families. It is a space where we can come together as a community, support one another, and empower our children, like Curwood, to thrive through the transformative practice of yoga.


Yoga has been a guiding light in my own life and in Curwood's life. It has provided us with a sense of calm, strength, and self-discovery. Through the power of yoga, we can help our children develop self-awareness, improve their social connections, and unlock their inherent potential. It is a journey of growth, resilience, and celebration of their unique strengths.


With DO YOGA FOR AUTISM AWARENESS, we aim to create a nurturing and inclusive community that embraces neurodiversity and fosters understanding and acceptance. We understand the financial challenges that many families face, and that's why I'm thrilled to share that 25% of the proceeds from this program will be given back to support families like ours. This financial support will be directed towards assisting families with therapy costs, school expenses, and any other needs they may have.


I invite you to join us on this inspiring journey. Let's come together, hand in hand, to raise awareness, provide financial support, and create a nurturing environment where our children, like Curwood, can flourish and reach their full potential. Together, we can make a positive impact and bring hope to families who need it the most.


With heartfelt love and gratitude,


Linda Osorio



At "House of Yoga Academy," our vision for DO YOGA FOR AUTISM AWARENESS is to create a supportive and empowering community that helps autistic children and their families in need of financial assistance through the practice of yoga. Our aim is to provide a safe and nurturing space where individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can experience the numerous physical, mental, and emotional benefits of yoga while promoting awareness and understanding of autism.


1. Financial Support for Families: We believe that everyone should have access to the healing benefits of yoga, regardless of their financial situation. Through our DO YOGA FOR AUTISM AWARENESS program, we strive to offer yoga classes specifically tailored for autistic children and their families at a subsidized cost or free of charge. This financial support ensures that families facing financial challenges can still participate and benefit from the transformative power of yoga.


2. Holistic Approach: Our approach to DO YOGA FOR AUTISM AWARENESS is holistic, addressing the unique needs of individuals with ASD and their families. We integrate yoga practices that focus on physical movement, breathwork, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques. This comprehensive approach aims to improve self-regulation, reduce anxiety, enhance body-mind connection, and promote overall well-being for autistic individuals.


3. Creating a Supportive Community: We strive to create a supportive and inclusive community where families affected by autism can connect, share experiences, and find support. Regular group classes, workshops, and events provide opportunities for families to come together, learn from each other, and build a network of support. This sense of community helps individuals and families navigate the challenges of autism with strength, resilience, and a sense of belonging.


4. Empowering Individuals with Autism: Our vision is to empower individuals with autism by providing them with tools and strategies to navigate their daily lives with greater ease and confidence. Through the practice of yoga, autistic individuals can develop self-awareness, improve social-communicative skills, enhance emotional regulation, and build resilience. We believe that every individual with autism has unique strengths and abilities, and yoga helps them tap into their full potential.


5. Raising Awareness: DO YOGA FOR AUTISM AWARENESS also aims to raise awareness about autism and promote understanding and acceptance within our broader community. Through educational workshops, seminars, and community outreach programs, we seek to dispel misconceptions about autism and foster a more inclusive society that celebrates neurodiversity.


Join us in our mission to make a positive difference in the lives of autistic children and their families. Together, through the power of yoga, we can create a more compassionate and inclusive world for everyone.
