Yoga is an ancient practice that unifies the body, mind and breath while moving through a variety of physical poses. Yoga has been proven to deepen self-respect, body awareness, and enhance health, success, and overall well-being.
As yoga practitioners learn how to move and breathe with control and maintain their focus, they begin to integrate the principles of flexibility, strength and balance into their practice and into their lives.
Children, Toddler, & Teen Yoga
Finding time for fitness, family fun, and a chance to relax can be a challenge. In family yoga they are all rolled into one.
We live in a world of hustle and bustle filled with pressures and responsibilities, running our children to play dates, lessons, and competitive sports practice. When our children live in a hurry-up world of busy parents, school pressures, and social commitments, we don't stop to take the time to think about how the busy pace can often times be harmful.
Yoga can help counterbalance these demands. When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and a way to connect with themselves and others, they can navigate life's challenges with a little more ease. Yoga encourages a healthy self-esteem and body awareness that will positively impact all aspects of their emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. Give your child the gift of yoga.
