Class Descriptions

Yoga for Kids - Ages 5-8:

This is an opportunity for children to explore their own yoga practice through songs, games and creative movement. Students will begin to answer the question "What is Yoga?" as they learn the basics of postures and breath. This class is appropriate for children who are new to yoga, as well as to those who are continuing their practice.

 

Yoga for Kids - Ages 9-12:

Kids 9 -12 years old will learn yoga poses to develop strength, flexibility, focus, concentration, self-esteem and how to breath and relax while respecting themselves and others. Students will also start to explore some basic yogic philosophies.  This workshop is appropriate for new and returning students.

Yoga for Teens:

This class is designed to help teens grow physically and emotionally strong. Yogic philosophies are introduced in contexts that apply to their lives, and the poses and breathwork support their day-to-day lives. Students are introduced to some basic Sanskrit as they learn yoga terminology. 


Together with Toddler:

This class is designed for toddlers ages 1-4 along with a caregiver. We focus on gross motor skills, basic breathing, cognitive development, and, of course, fun! There is music and storytelling, and the toddlers learn basic yoga poses through games and activities.
