 A special needs class in Nova Scotia is breaking new ground with its yoga program.

Yoga became a credit course at some high schools in the province last year, but the class at Cobequid Educational Centre is believed to be the first designed for students with autism or special needs in Canada.

It was a pilot program last year and is now part of the curriculum. Proponents hope the program spreads to other schools.
