CREATIVE YOGASHINE FOR KIDS

"While Joanna and Lucas are stretching their muscles by pulling on brightly colored bands, they are also broadening their imagination and social skills. - And their smiles couldn't be wider."
                                                                              The Journal News, April 25, 1999
CREATIVE YOGASHINE FOR KIDS

C reative YogaShine is an opportunity for kids to experience the joys of playful, centered, natural, creative movement.

Integrating the teachings of Kripalu Yoga, creative dance and the practices of dance-movement therapy, classes include warm-ups, traditional yoga postures, imagination-stretching animal games, a variety of props, songs, sharing of feelings and ideas, and breathing.

We make new friends - with our bodies, with ourselves and with each other.

CREATIVE YOGASHINE FOR KIDS

Benefits of Creative YogaShine:

increases attention span
improves body image
improves sense of body boundaries
increases flexibility, strength, and balance
builds gross and fine motor coordination
develops creativity and self-trust
develops a sense of harmony with nature
develops self-calming skills
develops group cooperation in a non-
      competitive environment
The uniqueness of this approach is that it not only develops kids' physical strengths and agility, but also keeps their connection to their "insides" alive and integrated.
