Early childhood students are filled with wonder and creativity. Yoga and mindfulness practices are a magical fit for kids this age. They are like sponges, waiting to soak up every experience through sensory discovery and personal interactions. Young children bring a free-spirited joy that makes them such a great group to learn with. Yoga for Early Childhood allows imaginations to soar when fueled with music, storytelling, breath, movement and relaxation. At any given time, the room can turn into a scene from The Land Before Time as the kids wave their arms like wings, crawl on hands and knees, or assume a down dog-like position. Everyone is laughing, smiling, learning, and playing. This is what Yoga for Early Childhood is all about ~ it's light-hearted, creative, energetic, and most of all, FUN!!! The children will discover skills that grow with them, instilling lessons for life. These practices supply their inner and outer world with peace, while learning how to calm, focus and relate to others. Yoga for Early Childhood incorporates fun yoga games that encourage social interaction and communication. Yogis will also learn specific breathing techniques that facilitate relaxation, and build attention skills required for focused learning.
