Class descriptions Kids Yoga
Ages 5-8 and 9-10
A yoga class designed for children is very different from an adult class that you might take at your local studio. It's filled with games, songs, stories, imaginative play, and activities that engage children and give them the tools to feel calmer, happier, and more peaceful inside
Being playful and silly is a great gateway to introducing yoga to kids. Not only will kids have space for self-expression in this class, they will also strengthen their bodies, as well as their connection to mindfulness and breathing techniques. Through yoga poses, art, music and more, kids release energy and learn how to relax.
Class is one hour.
Children in this age group graduate from barking in downward dog and meowing in cat pose to learning more postures and sequences. More focus on awareness of self and others, and longer times in meditation and mindfulness practices. Partner and group acro-yoga poses. Sharing circles to discuss basic yogic philosophies and how they apply to the modern day middle schooler. Still fun games and partner poses that age-appropriate.
Class is 1 hour.
