Tuesday, July 9th

1 p.m. - 1:45 p.m. (ages 5-8)

2 p.m. - 3 p.m. (ages 9-14)

For ages 5-8:

Calling all active 3-7 year olds for a yoga class full of games, music, yoga poses, and relaxation! This class is designed for the curiosity of young minds and the development of their gross motor skills.  This is an important stage in a child’s mental, emotional, and physical development, and yoga for kids can help to focus their scattered energy in a positive way.  Yoga can help this age group gain control over their physical movements and acquire better balance and coordination.  The playful practice of yoga also may help them learn to express emotions through postures and breathing, using models from nature.  In this class children can learn to use creative and constructive ways to view the world around them as they grow.

For ages 9-14:
Yoga is a wonderful way for children to express themselves. Yoga inspires creativity and imagination, and can help children learn to focus and calm themselves. Believe it or not, kids can feel stressed, too! Yoga for kids of any age can help relieve their tension and focus their energy on various tasks. This 1 hour class incorporates games, stretches, breathing techniques, and allows children to explore and play in a nurturing, non-competitive environment.

Science Day

The voice is a large part of our social identity and I believe it is imperative for people of all ages to be educated and confident in their own voice.
