Children’s yoga

How we teach

It is our firm belief that love and compassion for others begins in Mother Nature. By fostering this love in young minds, children will grow into caring individuals leading into their adult years.

Children will participate in:

  • creating their own wildlife inspired asanas as they learn about endangered species in each class
  • non-competitive activities including leading their Elephant herd as the matriarch of the family
  • designing their own mandala as they are inspired by the sounds of nature and wildlife
  • self-expression through music and movement
  • wildlife storytelling as they practice and create their own poses to match their story

Please note classes are conducted outdoors when possible to connect with Mother Nature!

What we teach

Our children’s yoga incorporates the innocence of children and animals, teaching young minds all life is important and that means animals too!

Children will learn:

  • breathing techniques to focus the mind and be present
  • improved balance and coordination through various poses and wildlife inspired games
  • to strengthen mental clarity and stability
  • about positive energy, listening to your heart and following your instincts
  • how their thought can affect their attitude and perception of themselves and others through self-awareness
  • to express themselves and gain confidence in their beliefs and opinions
