Children’s Yoga and Mindfulness Classes

These energetic classes are designed by RCYT’s and overseen by a pediatric therapist specifically with the motor, cognitive and developmental needs of children from Pre-schoolers to middle schoolers in mind. Movement and mindfulness experiences that improve self-regulation, attention, ability to follow directions, and so much more! 

Each class closes with the concept of quiet and stillness of the mind that benefit children of all ages. When we practice self reflections and stillness we learn to become less reactive and more responsive in daily life situations. Through practice, just like any sport or musical instrument, these social-emotional skills become more automatic and begin to occur more naturally in daily life.  Class sizes are small with a max of 10 children.

Why Children’s Yoga?

“Yoga is that one type of exercise that improves flexibility, core strength, and even balance. It seems to be one of the most complete and inclusive forms of exercise that we offer our kids of any age.” 

-Lori Watkins, Recreation Coordinator at Lakeshore Foundation – National Center on Health, Physical Activity & Disability- NCHPAD

Class Descriptions

Mini Movers

  • stretch and strengthen their bodies through yoga postures and motor activities

Young Yogi’s Mindful Adventures (Classes for ages 5-8 & 8-10)

These classes are designed specifically for the motor, cognitive and sensory benefits of the early elementary aged students.  Participants will:

  • stretch and strengthen their bodies through yoga postures and motor activities
  • build social skills through interactive games and stories with related yoga poses
  • improve focus and attention by incorporating self-regulation strategies, and breathing techniques into developmentally appropriate yoga & Mindfulness games
  • end each class with calming relaxation time (i.e. guided stories, sharing time, etc.)

Tween Yoga (Ages 10-12)

Movement, and therefore yoga, is essential for fast-growing bodies. Yoga can also provide pre-teens with essential life tools such as self-esteem and confidence, inner and outer strength, attention and concentration, and heightened awareness of both oneself and others. This interactive class provides a small group environment for Tweens to practice interactive social skills while practicing mindfulness activities and learning yoga poses and introductory level yoga flows.
