All Ages Kids Yoga & Art: Saturday 11:00am-12:30pm
Kids will find joy and bliss making arts and crafts following a yoga class, which warms them up to be creatively centered. Bring your child into the world of yoga and its many benefits. Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's noncompetitive. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, and coordination. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness improves. In this fun class, kids learn basic yoga elements through focused breathing, play, storytelling, balance and creative visualization. The classes are interactive and the children also learn through games in which they take turns becoming the “teacher”. Savasana (resting pose) will include creative visualization and body scanning for relaxation.
