Why youth yoga?
 

Yoga has numerous benefits, especially for young children. Our youth yoga curriculum is designed to:

 

  • Improve focus concentration and listening skills

  • Improve posture, motor skills, and balance

  • Manage stress through breathing and healthy movements

  • Allow children to express their creativity in a non-competitive environment and increases confidence

  • Improve flexibility and strength

 

According to the Wall Street Journal: “Yoga improved students’ behavior, physical health, and academic performance, as well as, attitudes towards themselves”

 

There is no such thing as an under-stimulated child anymore. Yoga provides children with a chance to turn off and tune out.  They are given time to engage in a non-competitive physical activity that also allows time for quiet reflection. Read more about youth yoga here.

 

 

How we move.
 

Although the curriculum varies by age/stage, the general flow is:

 

  • Welcome and warming up our bodies

  • Instructor-led yoga-inspired games

  • Instructor-led story and movement activity (literacy component) 

  • Cool-down stretch

  • Meditation and mindfulness exercise

 

The three pillars of the program are fitness, focus, and fun and we strive to achieve all three of these each and every class!!
