We want children to shine from the inside out
connect kids YOGA is specifically designed to introduce children to yoga in a fun, educational, non-competitive way.
Our classes infuse movement, music, yoga games, breathing exercises, imaginative play, storytelling, creative arts and relaxations to connect kids to their mind and body. Quiet and reflective relaxations and breathing exercises follow high intensity movement and games allowing kids to release built up energy and stress then reflect and connect.
Each week a new class theme is explored, taking children on a journey of self-discovery and provide learning experiences to encourage a connection with themselves, their peers, the community and the world.
