kids and tweens ages 8-12
Our kids Yoga classes give your child the opportunity to learn more challenging and creative poses, while maintaining a playful, fun class experience through games, props, art and songs. Classes focus on building self-confidence, physical strength and concentration. Partner poses, basic inversions and beginning arm balances are explored, and poses are held for longer amounts of time with a basic introduction to alignment. Children are encouraged to freely express their individuality while learning the basic yoga principles of respect for others and themselves.
Our unique Tween curriculum uses yoga to help bridge the gap between child and teenager. Tween Yoga classes incorporate a more adult approach to the yoga poses, breath and meditation, while encouraging the individuality and creativity of each Tween. Classes introduce more complicated poses that require a greater attention to full-body coordination. More mature explanations of yoga concepts and techniques to use off the mat are introduced as well. Tween Yoga classes often naturally encourage discussion on physical and developmental issues and explore problem solving through yoga concepts.
