Our first beautiful child Jasmin was born 1997 with down syndrome. Being a first-time parent and no clue what were the health implications of being born with down syndrome started our journey in learning the care of our daughter. Jasmin had low muscle tone, loss of hearing and difficulties with speech. With countless doctors appointments many surgeries and therapies I became over the years quite a specialist with her care. Jasmin now is a vibrant,healthy and happy Teenager. She is thriving in school and loves dancing,swimming and socializing with her friends. I couldn’t be more happier for her. Jasmin naturally led me to teaching Yoga to Special Needs Students, and the rest is history ..
