Tween Yoga (Fall)

Yoga raises body awareness, increases self-image, teaches concentration, and reduces stress. As a Certified Kid Yoga Teacher, I will provide a structured learning environment for your student to experience the many benefits of yoga. Through flow-based yoga poses and games that challenge balance and mental agility, expect your student to gain increased flexibility, strength, and balance, while simultaneously learning skills for focus and mindfulness through deep breathing exercises.  

Classes incorporate traditional sun salutations, poses, partner work, games, relaxation and meditation.  Students will leave feeling successful and light!
