Classes for Youth & Family
Uniquely designed for each developmental stage.
Preschool (ages 3 to 5 years)
Children experience the magic of yoga through stories, music, games and movement. They are encouraged to move and use their bodies in fun and imaginative ways, engaging in a variety of yoga poses that enable them to go from silly to calm, as they practice breath and body awareness.
Young Children (ages 6 to 10 years)
Through the use of stories, music, games and props, founded in theme-based teaching, children release restless energy while honing motor and language skills, boosting body and breathing awareness, and developing self-confidence. Relaxation and self-reflection is included in each session. Children participate in individual, partner and group yoga.
PreTeens (Grades 5-8, ages 11-14)
Through poses, games and conversation, Yoga for Tweens is designed to help preteens navigate their journey from childhood to teenager. This class gives preteens the tools they need to improve concentration, reduce stress, and explore their bodies and feelings in a fun and positive way. Preteens will challenge their bodies by practicing yoga postures for increased balance, flexibility and strength and connect to their bodies and quiet their minds through breathing exercises. Preteens will also learn how to take their yoga practice off the mat and into their daily lives to help them find ease in the face of today’s challenges.
Teens (High School, ages 15-18)
Being a teenager is hard! The pressures of homework and tests, sports, music performances, and where to fit in the social hierarchy often leave teens feeling stressed, anxious and stripped of energy. This class will equip high school students with the tools to healthily manage their emotions and stress levels, while leaving them feeling empowered and self-confident. Students will learn breathing and centering exercises, yoga postures, relaxation and meditation techniques as well as how and when to use these techniques when facing challenges outside of class. Benefits of movement and meditation include lowered stress, greater relaxation and sleep, and improved concentration and mental clarity.
FAMILY YOGA(ages 6-10)
In this class, children & their grown-ups (parents, grandparents, other caregivers) learn & practice basic yoga poses; and enjoy yoga stories, games, songs. Through yoga and community, we will create a fun, energetic and non-competitive environment that supports our efforts to build stronger social and emotional connections, boost physical fitness & self-expression, and let go of stress.
FAMILY YOGA with Lil’ KIDS (Ages 3-6)
We’ve combined our popular family yoga curriculum with our highly successful preschool yoga program to meet the specific developmental needs of young children and their families. In this 45-minute class, youngsters explore self-awareness and self-regulation, build confidence and self-esteem, and enhance strength and body awareness while engaging in yoga stories, games, and poses along side their parents, grandparents, siblings, and other family members. This class is an ideal opportunity for families with young children to come together to play, learn, grow, and have FUN as a family.
