Program Highlights for Mindful Minis
These 30-minute yoga sessions will be focused around movement from fingertips to toes and also allow space for children to explore mindfulness as it meets their age. Each session will check in with a full body practice as well as provide a space for children to share present thoughts and feelings with their peers to encourage full expression of these big and bright personalities. Classes will include song, music and games that children can also play at home with friends and family. Children will also be introduced to Sanskrit names of yoga poses. Children should wear light clothing and have water close by. A yoga mat and yoga block would be helpful but not required and can be substituted with household items like a towel or large book.
Program Highlights for Yoga for Athletes
Yoga for athletes is a powerful tool as it helps build muscle, aids in stretching and injury prevention. These 30-minute yoga sessions will be heavily rooted in vinyasa movement with a new focus each day on different parts of the body. A new balancing pose will be featured each week and children will be exposed to Sanskrit names and yoga terms. Mindfulness exploration will also be introduced as a tool to use both on and off their yoga mats. Classes will include music and games that young athletes can use at home for new and fun ways to build strength and confidence. Children should wear light clothing, and have water close by. A yoga mat and yoga block would be helpful but not required and can be substituted with household items like a towel or large book.
