After school yoga classes offer students in elementary through high school an opportunity to explore a yoga and mindfulness practice, enhancing students self-awareness and ability to be more conscious in their thoughts, actions, and decisions.
Students will learn a variety of yoga poses and sequences to help promote focus, healthy body awareness, connection, balance, and focus. In each session, we practice breathing techniques, guided meditations, and affirmations to deal with stress and difficult emotions.
Students are encouraged to work at their own level, with modifications shown for more difficult poses, to allow everyone to participate. As students experience the physical benefits of yoga, they also learn about yoga philosophy (kindness, gratefulness, honesty, truthfulness, etc.).
