Kids & Prenatal Yoga

Yoga for kids is a fun way for children to develop important skills in a fun, non-competitive environment.  Even at a young age, children often feel pressure at school academically and socially, plus the added pressure of after-school activites - it all adds up.  It is easy for girls and boys to become overly self-critical, and lose confidence in themselves as they grow and change.  Yoga is a great remedy to boost self-esteem; there is no judgment in a yoga class about how a child does a pose or plays a game. The aim of yoga is to help nurture a child’s inner strength, enhances self-awareness, self acceptance and self discipline.
