S.T.O.P. and RELAX©

A visual curriculum of guided yoga-based movements and breathing exercises for students of all ability levels.

Now Available in Digital or Box Kit formats!

S.T.O.P. and Relax (©2006) was created by autism and yoga educators to teach students with special needs how to monitor their anxiety levels and make sense of a very stimulating environment.

In addition to students with autism, general education students, students with attention deficit disorder, and students with early onset bipolar disorder have learned skills to enhance coping and self-regulation, using the S.T.O.P. and Relax method.

The S.T.O.P. and Relax© kit provides a foundation for creating a relaxation training program of your own!
  • Easy to follow Instructor’s Manual including data that shows effectiveness of the pilot program.
  • 50 Instructor’s Cards to explain each exercise, NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!
  • 50 Cue Cards (8 x 11")--one for each exercise to serve as visual cues for people with communication deficits.
  • Student Story Books to introduce and help generalize skills taught within the program.
  • Lesson Plans including creative, calming, and stimulating classes varying in length of time.
  • Permission Slips for use in school settings.
  • Signs of Stress Checklist to gauge an individual’s effectiveness of program.
  • Box Kit includes Display Binder to hold visual cue for easy accessibility and adaptability.
  • CD with guided breathing and relaxation tracks as well as music by Rich Foss
  • Posters with four-step mnemonic and rules for relaxation class.
  • Visuals to enhance understanding (Footprints, Focus circles, Left and Right cards)
