Children’s & Youth Yoga Details
I plan and teach all my classes by using my yoga teacher training, my ECE training and my knowledge and experience with children, as well as, the developmental stages of child development. This way, the children feel confident in the class and each element of the class meets their needs on all levels-physically, mentally, socially and emotionally. Each class provides a balance of play, fun and laughter, combined with attention, awareness and breath. Class starts with a welcome and centering together, as well as a closing together at the end! Class may include music with various tempos to correspond with the groups speed and flow of movement, stories read to the children and then brought to life and embodied through yoga poses, partner poses, different games, visualizations, affirmations, art and props/equipment.
(Youth yoga also includes “awesome music”-I have been told by many youth how important it is to include this!)
I am dedicated to teaching, honouring and serving all children by providing an inclusive class, safe environment and encouraging creativity and reflection. My intention is to have each of my students to leave feeling good about themselves and feeling what true bliss is!
