Back by popular demand! Throughout this 6 week program, we will explore yoga by introducing kid-friendly breathing exercises, cooperative games, themed activities, storytelling, and more. For kiddos who have participated in this program in the past, the content will be slightly different and they are encouraged to participate again to learn even more about yoga!
Our young yogis will be encouraged to listen to their bodies and be intuitive. Different activities will explore visual imagery and relaxation techniques, build upon social skills and foster positive thinking.
Class will meet on Sunday afternoons, and the program outline is below.
Week 1: Intro to Yoga/All About Me Children will be introduced to the awareness of body and breath in yoga postures while also sharing some special characteristics about themselves to the class.
Week 2: Shapes
Children will create and identify various shapes they can make with their bodies during yoga postures and activities.
Week 3: Nature
Children will learn about changes we see in nature throughout our four seasons while participating in yoga postures representing trees, water, and landforms we have here on Earth.
Week 4: Emotions
Children will share emotions they have experienced and find yoga postures that allow them to express these feelings in an appropriate way.
Week 5: Be a Hero!

Week 6: Family/ Partner Yoga
Children will invite family members to share in their yoga experience, teach postures they have learned, and join in partner postures and activities.
