Adventures in Yoga (check
schedule for ages)
games and activities, we will explore yoga postures to help children feel grounded, find their balance and begin exploring
their own creativity. Children will increase their self-awareness and self confidence
through movement and breath awareness . Children in these age groups are already exploring abstract concepts such as cooperation,
freedom, security, loss and generosity. Adventures in Yoga explores these concepts and more.
This class offers creative, fluid, and meditative flows that incorporate elements
from hatha yoga and chi flow motions. They are put together into a wavelike
moving sequence to open the physical as well as the energy body, release blockages, inviting new energy to come in revitalizing
your whole being.
flows are in alignment with the quality of the season as well as the lunar and solar qualities of the day. All levels are welcome.
Yoga (1 Hour)
This class offers a
guided practice and is best suited to those students who have previously been introduced to the yoga
basics. This is a great class for current students wanting an extra, guided practice during the week, students
returning from a break in their practice, and those whose schedules don't allow for regular attendance in an ongoing
class. Please note that this is a multi level class that is of shorter
duration. You will not receive the individual attention or step by step introduction to the postures and breathwork that is
offered in the ongoing session classes. If you are a beginning student or are looking for a more in depth understanding of
yoga or to deepen your practice we would encourage you to join a 10 week class.
