Enrichment through yoga
Yoga for kids and teens offer the same many benefits it does for adults. Practicing yoga at a prime developmental age can provide kids with self-care tools that can last a lifetime. Rather than a physical activity focused on competition, yoga fosters cooperation and compassion while encouraging self-esteem and body awareness. This introduction to mindfulness, thoughtful attention to felt-sensation and emotions, and relaxing breathing techniques can become a powerful tool to manage a child’s stress and anxiety. As parents ourselves, we are proud to offer classes and special events for kids from babies to teenagers.
