For girls in grades 3-6
Amongst themselves, girls can explore all that it means to be a girl: to laugh and cry with friends, to enjoy the freedom of being herself, to uncover her true potential. Yoga allows girls to enjoy being girls, together.
Girl Time Yoga provides an opportunity for pre-teen girls to discuss what matters most to them. Through the practice of yoga poses, relaxation and meditation, girls develop physical strength and stamina, greater emotional stability and a strong sense of self. Yoga is a practice of introspection and self discovery that leads to positive body image, self love and a can-do attitude. It allows girls to develop a better understanding of what it means to be a young woman, to be self-sure and confident of her power to positively affect the world.
Each session focuses on a theme, such as peace, compassion, respect and healthy living. Girls are encouraged to share their ideas and ideals, and support each other as they learn and grow. As they complete the activities related to the theme, they earn unique pins to affix to their ChildLight Yoga mat bag (included in the one-time registration fee). In this way girls enjoy a sense of accomplishment and progression as they explore ideas related to a positive, healthy lifestyle.
All of our sessions are appropriate for children who are new to Yoga, as well as for those who are continuing their instruction.
What to Bring/Wear:
Though we do have yoga mats available for use at the studio, it is recommended that you bring your own yoga mat to prevent the spread of germs. Note that we have mats availalbe in the boutique for as little as $10. As well, please have your child bring along a refillable water bottle with a spouted lid (one will be provided to your child with his/her one-time registration fee). Dress for movement. Tights are not recommended.
