Cost: $45/child, 2nd sibling: $35 Classes held at the Love Tribe Center: 1008 Main St. Branford
We invite your child to join us for a 4 -class kids yoga series.
Each 45 minute class is designed to introduce your child to traditional elements of yoga through
the developmentally appropriate and engaging practices of play. Relaxation breath work,
simple poses, meditation, and mindfulness skills are nestled with intention and care within the
framework of stories, music, games, and crafts.
Children will learn to quiet their minds, as they gently and compassionately re-connect with their body and breath. As they root into the present moment, children can develop the skills they need to more effectively regulate emotions, control impulses, and develop positive interpersonal connections. Each class will harness the power of your child’s creativity as we embark on an imaginary adventure, filled with a variety of animal-inspired yoga poses, positive affirmations, and peaceful practices.
