These afterschool and weekend yoga classes teach kids how to take time to slow down, breathe and feel joyful, while also developing their physical fitness.
KiddoButtons (Ages 4-8):
KiddoButtons learn a flowing sequence of animal and nature yoga poses which specifically promote kids' balance, concentration, flexibility and strength. These fitness skills compliment other extracurricular activities, such as soccer, hockey, football, dance, and gymnastics.
KiddoButtons classes engage kids in individual, partner and group yoga games with fun props, including balls, puppets, parachutes, jump ropes, ribbons, bubbles, face paint and more. KiddoButtons yoga activities build self-confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness through playful movement.
Developmentally appropriate skills in Numeracy (numbers, patterning, counting, shapes) and Literacy (oral language, listening) are explored through story, poetry, dance, drama and song.
TweenyButtons (Ages 6-12)
Yoga helps TweenyButtons connect with, understand and celebrate themselves through active movement and breath. Gaining poise through a deeper understanding of themselves while connecting to their bodies is especially important as kids approach and encounter their teenage years.
TweenyButtons yoga classes incorporate group games, partner activities, and drama to build self-confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness. These classes aim to give kids and young adults the tools to take these techniques from the mat to their daily lives. These skills enable them to make informed, healthy choices and deal with everyday life with ease and confidence in being themselves.
TweenyButtons classes develop physical fitness through yoga poses and flow sequences, specifically focusing on balance, strength coordination and flexibility.
