Yoga in Ringsend for Children with Dyspraxia and Related Conditions


The Ripple Effect is stretching into new terrain at the Ringsend Irishtown Community Centre this March, with the commencement of yoga classes.

The classes are aimed at kids aged six years to 12 years, the younger end of the target age range for the group, whose mission is to provide support and enriching activities for children and teenagers who have Dyspraxia, Asperger’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Syndrome and related conditions.

The Ripple Effect was formerly the Northside Dublin Dyspraxia Support Group. They rebranded in January of this year and are continuing on their mission of providing opportunities to children and young people who can find mixing and functioning in large groups to be difficult, confusing or overwhelming. The activities are determined by what the children want to try out for themselves, without sacrificing social and personal comfort levels. Yoga was encouraged as a choice for its calming and centring effects.

The first class in the six session course is on March 7th 4pm to 5pm in the Ringsend Irishtown Community Centre.
