Special Needs Activities
Yoga is not just a physical activity, but also it is a form of creative art expression. Some children with special needs have great difficulty expressing themselves or understanding emotions. Yoga and meditation gives children a chance to break out of their shells and express emotions in a non-threatening and non-judgmental environment.
Inner Seed is very honored to be hosting a Yoga and Meditation session as part of the YOUTH TALENT CLUB PROGRAM, to the beautiful souls of SEDRA members in Abu Dhabi.

Baking with the chef
On May 29th 2016, we had the pleasure to collaborate with La Brioche Abu Dhabi to host a creative cooking class with the chef. Children from different centers and initiatives were invited to spend a fun afternoon, learning how to ice and decorate pastries with the fabulous chef from Abu Dhabi Golf Gardens branch.
These interactive sessions come with many benefits:
