The Inspiring Grace Foundation Incorporated

The Inspiring Grace Foundation Incorporated offers free Yoga Classes and Individual Therapeutic and Restorative Yoga Sessions for kids on the Autism Spectrum.

As an organisation, we wish to bring a little inspiration and grace to the world of Yoga, to enable amazing special needs kids and adults to better cope with the demands of daily life in a regular world. 

Our volunteer Resident Yoga Teacher, Annaliese Bishop, thrives with Asperger's Syndrome (High Functioning Autism) and she is one of the first, if not the first, Autistic Yoga Teachers worldwide.

As a person rocking the Awesome Spectrum, Annaliese has found Yoga immensely helpful over the years in keeping her cool, calm and collected. Pranayama (breathing techniques) in particular allows her to calm herself when she finds a situation challenging or fascinating.  

Annaliese is highly trained, suitably qualified and exceptionally skilled in teaching Yoga to kids of all ages. Annaliese also maintains current Working With Children Check, Police Check, Senior First Aid and CPR certificates.
