-Increases Flexibility and strength- Children are naturally flexible, but somewhere around the ages of 6 or 7, their flexibility can diminish. The good news is that by practicing yoga it helps maintain their flexibility.
-Improves Balance- As children work on their balance in yoga poses, their self-confidence increases as they feel their bodies grow stronger.
-Enhances Concentration and Focus- Kids are part of a rapidly changing world. Yoga helps children practice concentration and self-control, which then enhances their focus and awareness.
-Practices Being Present and Mindful- There is much benefit to slowing down, unplugging and being away from it all, a yoga class keeps the kids present, aware and in the moment, which is a valuable skill to practice throughout life.
-Boosts Confidence- Yoga makes you feel good! As they practice, they become calmer, more poised and confident in their abilities, not only in class, but throughout their daily activities.
-Promotes Health and Stress Management- Breathing exercises in yoga help calm and center kids. This gives kids the tools to use when they are stressed or overwhelmed in life.
-Builds Peer and Social Interaction- Yoga is about encouraging one another and promoting acceptance, trust, kindness, and empathy.
Sparks Creativity and Expression- Our classes are fun and engaging as they move in and out of games, stories, and songs while learning new poses and practicing as a group.
