Kids Yoga – Yogi Juniors

This class has been created to encourage the healthy development of mental and physical capabilities in children age 6-12.
We focus on stability, strength, balance, mental clarity, breathing and calming the mind. A portion of this class focuses on meditation, breathing and relaxation techniques that children can use at home, at school, or anywhere when they are feeling overwhelmed, angry, upset, or stressed.
Kid’s yoga classes are a wonderful way to in-crease children’s co-ordination, self-awareness, confidence and self esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies. Using yoga, children can learn to relax, concentrate and be gentle in a fun and creative environment. Introducing your children to yoga at an early age can help them learn healthy lifestyle habits and set the foundation for a fit future

You are never too young (or too old) to start Yoga – Kid’s yoga classes are a wonderful way to increase children’s co-ordination, self-awareness, confidence and self esteem while they stretch and strengthen their bodies. Using yoga, children can learn to relax, concentrate and be gentle in a fun and creative environment.

Introducing your children to yoga at an early age can help them learn healthy lifestyle habits and set the foundation for a fit future. Yoga poses and exercises that children of all ages can enjoy cultivating self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfillment and body awareness.

Children between the ages of 6 and 12 lead busy and exciting lives… it is not only important to make sure that they are getting lots of physical activity and learning new things, but also to help them develop positive coping mechanisms that they are able to apply to situations in their daily lives.
