Twist

People of all ages love yoga and benefit from yoga as a way to stay healthy and cultivate peace, well-being, and confidence. Does your child have an amazing energy, joy, creativity, or awareness? These classes are designed to allow kids to bring their whole selves and strengths to stretch into their dreams. We relate to both the deep wisdom in each child, and the playfulness - honoring the sacred and the silly.

This is also a space that holds the depths, acknowledging that even young lives have had challenges and pain. These classes provide deep listening, love and also tools to deal with stress, work with the body, mind, and relationships, and help kids step into their power more fully and more often.

We are, in many ways, a product of our environments. As powerful as we may be personally, it is still very important to be aware of the friends we keep and the social atmospheres we walk through. Kids and Family Yoga & Dance classes are important as they provide a space where things like kindness, integrity, commitment, peace, conscious self-expression, internal and external awareness - are valued and socially supported. This is also a space that supports sensitivity to energy, imagination, and the invisible realms of life that often don't get the credit they deserve. Each child brings their own belief systems and values. We learn to listen deeply, cultivate compassion and understanding of both self and other. When kids are young, there often seems to be an innate understanding of energy, and perhaps even a powerful intuition. If you teach a 2 year old an om, he will use it when ever he feels stressed to naturally self regulate. When a child is 3 or 4, there is often a connection to joy and a self-confidence and knowing of self in "just being". One powerful function of yoga is to build in anchors to these positive states which wax and wane through the developmental wave. That way, they can be called upon as we grow up. That joy. That connection to source. That sense that "I have the right to be here" is always inside us. And yoga helps us build it deep, and call it forth when we need it.


Other Sessions & Themes - look for them again in the future, and they are also available for school programs & privately:


Yoga Treasure Chest Explore the jewels of yoga that have always been inside you.  We focus on resources, tools and inner treasure, each week adding new pieces to a treasure box that will last a lifetime. Through yoga, dance, meditation, visualization, & relaxation we will practice tools for tapping into our ability to self-regulate, overcome obstacles, & thrive. Shine your inner diamond and rest in your infinite value.

Spring Transformations Finish off the school year with a sense of calmness and strength. Reinforce pride in all you have done! We will work through the images of nature and the new life of Spring to feel at home in our bodies and the Earth. Yoga helps us know how resourced and strong we truly are, letting us embrace transformation in a deeper way. Through yoga, meditation, relaxation, visualization, essential oils, stones & gems, we will explore the medicine of the Earth and the beauty around us and inside us.

What is Yoga? Yoga Book    This series allows students to explore what yoga, meditation and movement mean to them, and how these practices can help us engage more fully with the things we find important. Is it a healthy body for a sport? Focus for a musical instrument, science, or art? Super-hero courage? Or a way to understand life and self in a deeper way? Students will get a chance to feel & enjoy in many ways and will make their own book about yoga.
