Ages 6-10 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.

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.
