LITTLE YOGIS (Age 2.9-5)
Little yogis learn yoga breathing, postures and meditation in each hour class. Imagination is key with this age group! Activities like “blowing out birthday candles” help us tune in and help little yogis learn yoga breathing.
We go on yoga adventures! “Traveling” to faraway lands, little yogis are guided through poses that represent all that they encounter. A tree, a mountain, a lion in the jungle!
Music is incorporated into each class to help students remain engaged and relaxed and to reinforce the positive messages of the yoga practice through thoughtful and kid-friendly lyrics. Deep relaxation is always followed by a simple meditation.
Each class ends with a mindful game, activity or simple art project. Little yogis will leave class with a weekly “homework” assignment to continue their practice at home (for example a coloring page with a new yoga pose, instructions to practice the meditation learned in class, etc.) Parents may participate or observe this class.
Big Yogis (age 6-9)
Big Yogis (ages 6-9 Years) will continue to explore the joys of yoga as they practice more physically challenging postures to build strength, balance and focus in their one-hour class. Yoga breathing, postures and meditation will be included in all classes. Big yogis focus on building strong body and breath awareness, cooperative skills, and self-confidence.
Children will help teach the yoga adventures, calling upon creativity and imagination whilst building leadership skills. Activities like partner yoga enforce cooperative learning and are great fun! Deep relaxation is always followed by meditation or a simple chant. Each class ends with a mindful game, activity or simple art project.
Big yogis will leave class with a coloring page as a reminder to continue their practice at home, and an "assignment" for the following week. (for example, practice teaching a posture for class the following week, instructions to practice the meditation learned in class, etc.) Simple meditation props such as gemstones and feathers will be handed out during the series. (Parents may drop-off or observe this class.)
