Yoga & Meditation for Children
During each 45 minute class your child will practice meditation and yoga while incorporating interactive games, stories and activities. Through meditation we will be learning breathing techniques and visualization to manage strong emotions, self-regulate, cope with transitions and build resiliency. Using Yoga as a moving meditation, your child will leave the program feeling grounded and refreshed.
The simple and fun techniques we use can easily be incorporated into their daily routine and will be developmentally appropriate for each child’s unique interests, needs and abilities. Together the children will create a safe and beautiful place to connect with their true selves, building their sense of self love and worth.
Classes are available for ages 4-7 and are facilitated by Bizz Varty.
