In a world where many kids live a fast paced lifestyle with busy schedules between school, sports, and other activities, they can be inundated with stresses such as peer pressure, competition, and over stimulation.
Yoga, the 5,000-year-old art of fusing the body and mind, is a powerful tool to help children find balance, obtain a sense of calmness, and develop a healthy relationship with themselves and the world around them.
Children will learn how to create a strong mind-body connection through breath awareness, postures, and stillness while also being given space to play, imagine, and learn fun yogic movements for the body that can keep them strong, healthy, and balanced.
Yoga is a practice that can benefit us through our entire lives; encourage the good habits to start early!
Instructor Macy Ratliff brings her years of teaching children, her love of reading, her passion for yoga and her strong exuberance for life to these mini yoga journeys. When not teaching Kid's yoga you might spot Macy around town enjoying one of her many other passions like running, swimming, kayaking, hiking, and of coarse, YOGA!
