Children, Pre-teens, and Teens
With their sense of wonder, desire for knowledge and great physical flexibility, children are natural yogis. Kids Yoga (ages 6 – 10) is a wonderful opportunity for children to enhance self awareness, imagination and creativity, improve social interaction and aid in relaxing their bodies and minds. Through fun warm-ups, breathing games, dances, yoga poses, and relaxation exercises, children are encouraged to maintain focus, work on strength, balance, coordination and flexibility all in a fun, non-competitive atmosphere.

Pre-teens are at a particularly sensitive age when they still hold some qualities of children and are maturing into teenagers. Yoga for Pre-teens (ages 10 – 13) aims to harness these emotions, calm the nervous system, and channel presence. Visit the “Courses” page to find the next session.
All-Girls Yoga for Teens gives teenage girls a non-competitive venue for social interaction, proper exercise, positive thinking, and relaxation. With techniques that will help to improve concentration, sleeping patterns, and physical flexibility, the benefits of this class filter into every aspect of their daily lives.
