Kid Yoga Classes are for ages 6-11
Fun, playful and educational describe Kid’s Yoga with Michelle. Elementary age children will learn yoga through play, games and partner work. This course is designed for kids to learn poses, proper alignment and balance, learn the value of stillness and trusting one another with partner poses. Yoga stories and values will be infused into the class as well as chanting and singing mantras to help with movement.
Kid Yoga is 50-minutes long. The class is intense with lots of movement and play so make sure your child is on-time to get the full experience. Have your child bring his or her own beanie baby or bean bag stuffed animal to class. We will use them as props and so your child has a “Yoga Friend” with him or her at all times.
Each Kid Yoga student will also bring a small bottle of water. (No other drinks or food will be permitted in the studio.)
This is a drop off class. Parents are encouraged to leave for the full 50 minutes so we can honor the silence of the classroom when we need to. There is plenty of shopping down the road so you can get some shopping done while your child learns yoga moves.
Discipline & Respect is a big part of yoga philosophy as well as Karma Yoga or Yoga of Service
To foster this sense of responsibility each Teen & Kid Yoga student will:
-Leave shoes, coats and any other items near the front door in designated areas.
-For teens/tweens all cell phones must be on silent mode and in the front hall during class.
