The practices of yoga and mindfulness are associated with a host of positive attributes, including increased well-being, focus, and calm. I look forward to guiding your child toward a serene and happy end of the day with yoga asanas (postures), breathing, meditation, and games. Students will learn how yoga and mindfulness can help them concentrate and be more mindful both at school and with friends and family. This afterschool class will be a peaceful means of transitioning from school to home. Children will need to wear comfortable clothing to school on the day they have yoga class. Yoga mats will be provided!
