What is Children’s Yoga?
The world of our children and youth, boys and girls, is filled to the brim with distractions of all kinds. This class encourages the young child to step away from the external diversions and participate more wholly in the process of learning to be in their bodies and discover the enchanting world of breath and song, rhythm and movement. Developed around the S.T.A.R. program (Success Through Accepting Responsibility), this class incorporates engaging yoga postures for the ‘busy’ body and meditation exercises for the young mind.
Jedi Yoga is designed to specifically engage young boys ages 6-10 in metaphysical and energetic mind-body connection through yoga philosophy, postures, breath work and mindfulness meditation. Jedi warriors are noble defenders of peace and justice, they value wisdom, knowledge, inquiry, and patience. Each class explores the two sides of the ‘Force’: the Light side and the Dark side, through stories, discussion and imaginative mindful activities. Lessons emphasize respect, kindness, and peaceful Jedi warrior traits (courage, compassion, honor) to bring balance to the ‘Force.’
