With Yoga Mind Li Kids Yoga, children are encouraged to “play” yoga and experience how their breath and body move together in a fun-filled way! In this Kids Yoga program we are going to sing, play, dance, learn a variety of yoga tools that they can take away from yoga class and use throughout their lives. Animals, nature, and other objects come alive in our classes; as we move, we learn to stretch our bodies in new creative ways. Through basic and challenging yoga poses, partner poses, group poses, yoga games, mindfulness activities, music, and stories, we promote strength, flexibility, coordination, and body awareness. Breathing and visualization techniques teach focus, relaxation, and self-control. The Yoga Mind Li Kids Yoga program also promotes inner-strength, confidence, and self-esteem; a feeling of well-being and respect for others; and, love for one’s self, inside and out.
