yoga for Kids
Watch Your Child Shine
Yoga 4 Kids in Binghamton, Johnson City & Vestal
At Yoga Body Shop, Yoga 4 Kids is offered every Sunday morning for children ages 5-10. Teaching children yoga is nothing like teaching adults! They want to explore, touch, move and create. Children live in the moment!
Class begins with a greeting game and creating a positive affirmation such as “I am awesome.” Affirmations are like an “intention” in that they help the child recognize they have the power to change themselves internally and how they interact with the world externally. Fun yoga props are incorporated into the class, including blocks, blankets, aerial silks, therapy balls, and foam rollers. It is no surprise that kids LOVE toys!
Yoga 4 Kids is based on Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences to stimulate and create a matrix for learning. There are eight multiple intelligences: verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial, musical-rhythmic, body-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. Kids learn in ways that are identifiably distinct. Yoga 4 Kids uses Gardner’s theory to stimulate and create a matrix for learning.
Yoga 4 Kids at Yoga Body Shop will help your children gain respect for themselves, develop a strong healthy body, and step into a place of self-confidence. Yoga Body Shop is excited to engage children from our communities—Binghamton, Johnson City, Vestal and the surrounding areas—to begin their yoga journey through Yoga 4 Kids. Yoga is about self-expression! Watch your child shine!
