Yoga for Kids & Teens
(currently in Spring 2019 only at Strong Roots outdoors school, will be available at IYCGR in future, please contact us)
Yoga is very beneficial for children's overall health and development. While the emphasis is upon mobility and agility for the younger ages, gradually the postures are improved and perfected. We will also learn and practice poses that are soothing for stomachaches, poses that help with headaches, those which help for sore necks and backs after lots of studying and school work, and which postures help make us strong and improve our posture for daily practice, and much more! Stories illuminate the teachings of the eight limbs of yoga. This quickly-paced playful class is modeled on the children's yoga program taught at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute.
When kids and teen yoga class is not offered on the weekly schedule, kids and teens are welcome to attend regular classes with parents, and teens may also attend without parents.
