  • WHY YOGA FOR KIDS?

    Learning yoga tools at a young age can be instrumental to a child's social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. We offer classes that expose children of varying ages to yoga in a manner that they can understand—and have fun, too!

     

    The many benefits of yoga include:

    • Enhanced strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination
    • Improved concentration, focus, and attention
    • Skills to promote calm and to be less reactive (self regulation skills)
    • Creative expression & imagination
    • Environmental awareness and overall sense of connectedness
    • Respect for self & others
    • Awareness of the mind/body connection
    • An overall increased sense of well-being

    What others are saying about Yoga for Kids Classes:
    “Our kids LOVED class today. They haven't stopped talking about it. They both felt fantastic afterward and said they wanted to hold on to that feeling. Tonight before bed, M said, "I wish we could do more yoga." They wish it were more than once a week. They also specifically love the stories you do with them. Thank you so very much. We're looking forward to the next series of classes!” -S.F. (Mom of 2 Yoga Students)
     
    “I LOVE doing yoga with Miss Pat! We practice breathing to calm down and have fun doing the poses! Miss Pat did my Birthday Party and it was a lot of fun!”- E.D. (Age 9)
     
    "Sometimes I get really mad at my little brother and I want to yell at him. I am trying hard to be nicer when he annoys me. I did my Balloon Breath when I got mad at him yesterday. I like how yoga makes me feel calm inside. And it's fun!"
