10 Class Series: January 8th to March 18th (no class February 19th)
5 – 8 years old: Wednesdays, 4:30 pm-5:15 pm
8 – 11 years old: Wednesdays, 5:30pm-6:15pm
No matter what our age, a consistent yoga practice gives us the tools to deal with life’s adversities with grace and courage … and who wouldn’t want that for their son or daughter?
We offer 2 different classes for children on Wednesdays: the 4:30pm class are for five to eight year olds, and the 5:30pm class is for eight to eleven year olds. These 45-minute classes are organized into 10-week series throughout the school year. We encourage students to sign up for the full series, although drop-ins are permitted.
In each class, along with the yoga poses and breathing practices, we add a simple meditation practice. Students are taught the name of the asanas and the story behind the pose. A short guided relaxation ends the class. Classes are geared for elementary school-aged children.
For children’s classes, parents and caregivers are welcome to wait in our comfortable reception area, or leave the premises. For the safety of our charges, we require parents and caregivers to come back into the studio for pick-up.
Our Children’s Yoga Teacher is Paula Pierolivo, who has been teaching all over the world since 2009. While in Nairobi, Paula taught yoga to expats at the International School of Kenya, as well as Kenyan children traumatized by violence at The Nest Home, where both groups experienced the healing power of yoga. In 2016, Paula became a certified Mindfulness and Yoga teacher through Little Flower Yoga.
