Yoga for Children

If you’re reading this, it’s likely you already know about the many benefits adult stand to gain from a regular yoga practice. The benefits are the same for children, whether they are practicing yoga at school, camp, a birthday party, as part of a warm­-up or cool­-down for a sport, etc...

A regular yoga practice can:

  • Improve mind/body awareness and connection
  • Bring children into the present moment
  • Emphasize individual abilities rather than competition
  • Encourage respect for others and oneself
  • Enhance focus and concentration

If you are interested in scheduling a private or group class for your son or daughter, please contact me!

Relax, rejuvenate, and create! If you haven't heard: mindfulness is great for your physical and mental health. Join me for an intro to mindfulness, and enjoy a week of exercise and crafts. We'll begin each class with breathing/mindfulness exercises designed to help you focus on the present moment. Following our warm-up, we'll have a fun-filled, active yoga class culminating with a guided relaxation. After our yoga session, you'll make a different art project each day—from mandalas out of rocks, shells, and feathers; to gratitude rocks; to worry dolls—projects will be linked to the theme of the day that's introduced through our mindfulness exercises. Bring a snack. Grades 2-5.

Note: Bring a yoga mat or a beach towel.
