Yoga & Meditation (Ages 5-10)

Children have a natural proclivity for letting go of distractions and being in the moment. Practicing Mindfulness will give them the tools to practice how to harness this quality, which offers them access to their own resiliency. Something that they can benefit throughout their lives.

A great place to begin this practice with children is to focus on the body and the breath. Which we will be doing with Yoga.We’ll stretch like a dog, balance like a flamingo, breathe like a bunny, or stand strong and tall like a tree. Also, attendants will be able to learn and practice simple meditation skills to carry with them into their busy lives.
