We are all born natural yogis. The younger we are, the more pliable and flexible our muscles and joints are. YogaFitKids! encourages kids, teens and parents, to explore their natural abilities in an active, safe, and fun way that honors the diversity of each students’ flexibility and strength. YogaFitKids! is a fun, playful class where kids can move energy through their bodies and bring calm into their minds. YogaFitKids! is excellent for:
- Promoting physical development and a positive attitude toward physical activity.
- Building self-esteem, focus, and concentration.
- Improving strength, flexibility, body awareness, and neuromuscular coordination.
- Complementing other sports training by helping to prevent injury and improve coordination.
- Helping to find balance in busy and active lives, relieving overall stress, and helping to develop poise and confidence.
- Helping teens and adolescents to develop a healthy relationship with their changing bodies and a positive image of themselves
- Creating a totally positive, supportive and non-competitive environment where we use cooperative learning activities to build trust.
YogaFitKids! is a great activity for ALL children – everyone can be successful in YogaFitKids! Yoga is inclusive and allows children to participate at their own level. Yoga improves self-esteem for all children. Children with attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD), hyperactivity, autism, and Down’s syndrome have found great success through the practice of yoga.
YogaFitKids! Teacher Training is a user-friendly program for anyone wanting to teach children yoga. We will teach you to instruct children and teens in basic poses and mindful movement, breathing activities, share circles, laughter yoga, partner yoga, and many other cooperative learning games and activities. These activities develop character, creativity, and positive social interaction, emotional balance/intelligence/awareness, and bodily/kinesthetic intelligence/awareness.
