Let your kids get their Downdog on while you run errands or visit the Culver City Farmer's Market!
Just like for adults, yoga can be highly beneficial for kids of all ages.
Some of the benefits of starting an early yoga practice include:
• Improved attention & focus
• Motor skill development
• Ability to self-soothe & regulate
• Fosters a strong sense of self
• Nurtures self confidence
• Builds physical & mental awareness
• Cultivates compassion for self & others
Full of music, dance, silliness and, of course, tons of yoga, this class will bring both laughter and calm to your littlest yogis. They will learn basic yoga poses, songs, games, simple meditation and breathing and even learn SANKSRIT! A Downdog class will bring a giant smile to their faces and instill a sense of peace in their hearts.
This class invites your kids and tweens to learn yoga but in a fun and accessible atmosphere. We work on all the basics – sun salutations, meditation, pranayama, challenge poses and games but with a twist. Updog classes will leave them wanting more yoga in their lives and using the techniques both at home and school.
