Our Programs School Yoga Program

School Yoga Program

Overview:

We will use the yoga asanas (movement between postures and breath) as the foundation for exploring many subject areas. For example, animal adaptations and behavior, music, or storytelling will be a major part in each class. Each child stretches like a dog, balances like an eagle, breathes like a cat, or stands like a tall mountain, he or she will be making a connection between their bodies and the environment. We will be able to create stories through our movements while building strength and awareness of our surroundings.

Benefits of Yoga for Children:

We live in a society where everyone is in a hurry. We rarely focus on the effects that rushing has on our children and the behaviors that are a representation of the effects. When children learn techniques of self-help, relaxation, and inner fulfillment they gain the ability to navigate life’s challenges with more ease. Yoga at an early age will encourage self-esteem, strength, flexibility, and coordination.

Additional Benefits:

  1. Teaches self-acceptance and self-love
  2. Increased awareness of breathing techniques
  3. Improves posture and alignment
  4. Relieves tension and stress
  5. Improves the ability to be less reactive; more mindful thoughts, words, and action.
