KIDS AERIAL YOGA 5 WEEK SERIES next session starts April 8th 2018 Sunday's 12:00- 1:00pm Kids (Ages 8-12) Sunday's 1:15- 2:15pm Kids (Ages 5-7) $75 / 5weeks ***************** Why a 5 Week Series? A 5 week series allows children to learn through play, repetition, and consistency. Yoga is not a destination, rather, a journey through ones lifetime. Ideally, when children learn this sense of discipline at a young age, the benefits of a committed yoga practice can ripple throughout their everyday life activities, relationships, and responsibilities. When they learn that yoga takes practice, versus an immediate accomplishment, they learn and accept that life is a path with good days, bad days, and everything in between.

The Benefits of Yoga for Children (Just a few!)
“Children are like sponges” is what they always say! Introduce ideas, languages, & beliefs within the early years to ingrain them as part of their upbringing and daily lives. If this is true (and it is proven!), I wish I had the opportunity to learn Yoga and its amazingly positive philosophies as a child! Children gain many of the same benefits from yoga that adults do, and while children can suffer not only from the stresses and pressures of a busy day at school/daycare, they are also very affected by the stresses and demands from their caregiver or adult’s daily life. Take time for what’s most important…your personal mental wellbeing, as well as your child’s!
Self-esteem: Yoga encourages a positive aspect of one’s self and of others during this important developmental stage. There is no right or wrong, and yoga is not a competition. We are all different and we are all special! Our classes focus on honoring each other’s individuality and encourage a safe and non-judgmental space for children to thrive.
Parental-Child Bonding & Peer Bonding: Yoga teaches children that we are all the same inside, despite our outward appearance, race, and religion. We all have bodies that function, hearts that love, and feelings that feel. Partner yoga poses allow children to fully understand this concept of oneness by working together. Yoga inspires kids to be kind, patient, accepting, and emphatic with themselves and their peers.
Body Awareness, Enhanced Concentration, Balance & Coordination. Children learn self-control, enhancing their focus and awareness.
Strength & Flexibility Children are born with an innate flexibility and yoga poses help to prolong this gift. Yoga uses all of the major muscle groups and aids in developing strength in their growing muscles and bodies. Yoga poses vary from balancing, strengthening, twisting, back bending, and inverting. All of these poses have the ability to teach a child about their body. Yoga teaches children to listen to where in their bodies they feel a movement and express how it makes them feel when they are complete. Body awareness is an invaluable tool for all stages and ages of life.
Yoga Philosophy & Valuable Tools to Cultivate a Peaceful, Relaxed State of Body and Mind for life! Yoga philosophy teaches Present Moment Awareness because when our mind is thinking about the past or future, we are missing the most valuable now. When children are engaged, focused, having fun, and following a yoga lesson, they are in the present moment. A valuable tool to carry throughout their life. Tools for Stress Management: Practicing yoga provides kids an immediate outlet to reduce stress in a safe and nurturing environment. It is a physical exercise that produces happy endorphins. They learn different breathing exercises to help deal with stressful situations to calm them allowing them to use their words instead acting out of anger & rage (which are extremely important & normal feelings and reactions when dealt with properly) Focused Breath slows down the heart rate, promotes better sleep, cleanses and detoxifies the body and is used as a relaxation technique and a powerful source for calming the mind and the body. Yoga teaches non-judgment and non-competition toward oneself and one another. These are all tools that a child can carry in to any difficult life situation.
Teaches Discipline and Responsibility: Yoga is not a destination; rather it is a journey of a lifetime, which takes discipline. Ideally, when children learn at a young age the benefit of a committed practice, it ripples out into their everyday life activities, relationships, and responsibilities. When they learn that yoga takes practice versus an immediate accomplishment, they learn and accept that life is a path with good days, bad days, and everything in between.
