Yoga provides vital therapeutic benefits to children. This is ChildLight Yoga’s foundational philosophy and motivation. While our classes provide an opportunity for children to explore movement in a fun and supportive environment, our primary objective is to provide children with strategies that build the resilience they need to adapt to the busy, outcome-based world in which they live.
Breathing, movement, meditation, affirmation are some of many strategies we utilize to promote adaptibility, self-esteem, courage, a healthy body and a calm and confident mind. This is important – necessary – work, and we are proud of our competent and caring team of teachers that works so effectively to offer the benefits of a holistically healthy lifestyle to children.
Fall 2013 Schedule
Girl Time Yoga
Girl Time Yoga provides an opportunity for pre-teen girls to discuss what matters most to them. Through the practice of yoga poses, relaxation and meditation, girls develop physical strength and stamina, greater emotional stability and a strong sense of self. Yoga is a practice of introspection and self discovery that leads to positive body image, self love and a can-do attitude. It allows girls to develop a better understanding of what it means to be a young woman, to be self-sure and confident of her power to positively affect the world.
Girl Time Yoga 1 (Gr 3-6) is at 5:30-6:30
Girl Time Yoga 2 (Gr 6-10) is at 6:30-7:30
