Mountain Yoga presents 2 Kids Yoga Series to cater to the varying interests, energies, and developmental stages of children.
A creative and fun way for your child to learn to move their bodies, practice fun and challenging poses, explore breathing techniques, focus and calm their minds, and create a community with others.
During this 6-week session, students will develop the skills to identify and use mindfulness tools in their everyday life. Some of the tools include compassion for self, compassion for others and the earth, breathing games, gratitude, and visualization. These classes will help children become aware of their bodies, learn self-respect and respect for others, cope with stress and difficult emotions, build confidence, and develop coordination and strength.
Mom or Dad can take yoga too! Both Kids Yoga classes align with an adult class on the schedule. Pre-registration encouraged.
Meet our kids yoga instructor: Jayme
I currently reside in Sandy, Utah, and I am a mother of two kids. I am a certified elementary teacher and secondary health teacher. I recently completed a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a Concentration in Literacy Education. My love of educating children led me to teaching kindergarten in the wild west of Idaho and Nevada for seven years. During this time, I incorporated breathing and yoga practices in a variety of environments including the classroom, a recreation center, yoga studio, and a before school program. These practices involved physical and mental techniques to build confidence, improve concentration, and spark creativity in students. In addition, I have completed trainings through Yoginos: Yoga for Youth to further implement mindful practices in the studio and classroom. I am extremely passionate about teaching children mindfulness tools on and off the yoga mat, so they can incorporate them in their everyday lives. I believe these tools will help children make healthier choices for their mind, body, and heart in all situations.
