I (Rach) created and founded SEND Yogis in January 2020. As someone who lives with fibromyalgia, autism and ADHD, i found it hard finding employment that worked for me. I started yoga after I left school in Year 11 to help with my fibromyalgia and found it helped me in so many ways. Both my siblings have autism and ADHD and wanted to practise too but the lack of SEN-friendly yoga in the locality really surprised us! 

After I left school, I went to North Herts College to do Children’s Play, Learning and Development. After a year, I left with a National Award in the subject. I took a bit of time off to get myself well as being at school then college had taken a toll on my health. I volunteered at Keech Hospice Care Charity Shop in Stevenage for a few months then, after Christmas, the idea of SEND Yogis was born.

I signed up to train with Special Yoga and attended their Yoga and Mindfulness for Autism and ADHD course in March 2020. Then I studied for my Special Yoga for Special Children Level 1 Qualification which I received early 2021. In June 2021, I took part in Special Yoga’s Chair Yoga Course.
