Class Experience

Students will learn breathing techniques, basic yoga balancing poses at their levels, how to connect movement & fun, while balancing their emotions as well!
I have been teaching children's yoga and swimming lessons for going on two years, and my background includes two years overseas in a Montessori style environment, so that combined with the standard 200 hour RYS (registered yoga school) teacher training makes my yoga philosophy pretty simple:  as long as they are on the mat, they are doing yoga.  This is especially useful for situations that are outside of the norm (i.e. the world we are currently living in) and teaching yoga to a young age demographic. In addition, I like to connect with the students and involve them in the class creation, so I often ask children to suggest additional poses with their favorite animals, etc.
A Blanket (a Towel or Yoga Mat is fine, too!) and a Stuffed Animal that You Really Like or Love.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please convey the following information to your child: Asanas, or yoga postures, mean postures easily held. If it’s too hard or if it hurts, you can stop! You may rest at any time during the class. It is important in yoga that you listen to your body, do only what feels safe to you, and respect your body's limits on any given day.  In addition, please make sure to provide an open workout space, slip proof socks or bare feet, and a yoga surface that is slip resistant.  Thanks in advance for looking out for the safety and well being of your children!
