Children can grow into their own practice of yoga; learning to strengthen their concentration skills and calm their minds, which leads to greater awareness and control of the body’s  movements. Interactive story-telling, games, music, and age-appropriate journaling are woven throughout a lively asana series to create a child-inspired yoga experience that is enriching and FUN!
