Have you ever thought about all the lessons you learned throughout your life such as being grateful, being true to yourself, living in the moment, being resilient, being comfortable with uncertainty, learning to love your authentic self and interacting with others honestly and with respect? What if you were give the opportunity to have embraced all those lessons as a young child? How much easier and sweeter would life have been during those difficult years growing up?
Through our children's yoga program we will work to instill these qualities in the children, as well as provide an engaging and energetic asana practice. Children will explore movement, using children's stories and songs to explore animals and other nature elements that relate to yoga poses. The children will be invited to try the poses and explore their own expression of each asana. This is a fun and relaxed environment, perfect for introducing the youngest yogis to the joys of yoga! Enjoying asana, meditation and breath work and ending with a snuggly final relaxation, children will experience the benefits of yoga, and leave feeling replenished and renewed.
This series is for children ages 4-8; all levels are welcome. Parents are welcome to attend class with their child/children.
$72 for the six-week series. Drop-in for $15.
