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?
The benefits of yoga for children have been well documented -- increased strength, focus, flexibility. Through age-appropriate games, songs, and asanas we explore the world of yoga. We learn to manage big emotions like fear, anger and sadness with simple yet effective breathing, mindfulness and meditation techniques. Children leave the class knowing these tools are always available to them, empowering them to freely connect with themselves and the world around them.
Everyone, at every age, can benefit from a steady yoga practice.
10 Week Series Begins Monday, April 9th
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.
