About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

KIDS YOGA--A SPECIAL SESSION THAT FOCUSES ON "FOCUS".

Can Yoga help develop concentration and focus in kids? The instructor of this class has studied and practiced many different aspects of yoga and wellness and is offering this class on an experimental basis to explore how yoga can help with the challenge of developing and keeping focus during these challenging times.

Kids will learn in this short session one particular exercise to perform each morning beside their bed. They will learn one breathing exercise to help focus and concentration each morning before they get out of bed. They will learn one relaxation technique to help them "tune out" external sensory distractions so that they can more deeply relax when needed. If time permits, they will learn one primal sound (a word) to say to themselves to help them cope with upsetting situations.

Any kid between ages 6 -12 should enjoy this class. However, teens (especially early teens) should also benefit as long as they understand the class will be taught at a pace that will also help younger kids. Because this is an experimental class, parents or a responsible adult are encouraged but not required to attend as observers. The instructor will welcome feedback from adults/parents, regardless of whether they can attend the class.

Please note that this class is not designed for kids with severe behavioral challenges.
