Letting Kids be Kids

Yoga truly is for all people, regardless of age. In my classes, I like to encourage students to find their own creative flow to build confidence — especially during my kids yoga classes. I like to challenge the kids by instructing them on how to safely get into a pose but I also let them have some time to do what they want on their own. This teaches kids how to independently connect with their bodies and minds. Plus, they can just enjoy being a kid instead of them waiting for me to tell them what to do. In turn, they can identify with what they need by mentally reaching inside. When the new year comes, we will focus on goal setting with fun poses and activities. Stay tuned!
