Parents supervision during class not required.
We explore ways to use our feet, do hand-eye co-ordination exercises, fast dynamic movements and balance poses to build patience and strength. Following a sequence in a flowing manner, we employ standing poses, inversions, backbends, twists and forward bends. We always include quiet time and meditation postures. Kids find joy in stillness as well as movement although the primary focus is movement.
Every child is encouraged with positive feedback and complete acceptance of their own journey. We honor the individuality in each child; working with them where they are at, not where we think they should be! We go from silly to serious, speedy moves to complete stillness. The Kids have a blast and learn that yoga is a non competitive practice!
