Kids Yoga

Yoga is expressive and that is why it is so appealing to children. Our goal at Yoga Posies is to introduce yoga in a clear and simple way that makes it fun to do. We practice fun-filled poses, games, and breathing exercises to promote:

  • Physical Strength and Flexibility Concentration
  • Focus and Attention
  • A Feeling of Well-being and Respect for others
  • Confidence and Self-Esteem

Through learning the physical postures of yoga, your child will learn how to explore and appreciate his/her own creative potential. Classes maintain a positive environment that supports self-esteem, confidence, body appreciation and tools for stress management.

Benefits of Yoga for kids

Yoga is for everyone. Children do yoga naturally, they love to be upside down in downward facing dog, stand on one leg like a tree & crawl on the floor like a cat. Children are very flexible - we eventually lose that flexibility as we age. Through playful laughter & a sense of adventure kids can learn basic flexibility, coordination, body awareness & self control. If they are feeling anxious about talking in front of the class or having trouble focusing on their homework, kids will unconsciously call upon the mind calming techniques taught to them in yoga.
