What We Believe
Kids are natural yogis. They are curious, like to move, and want to learn and grow. At NGY, we cultivate these innate characteristics … planting seeds that can develop throughout a lifetime and make meaningful differences for the next generation!
NGY believes that kids, tweens, and teens benefit from a balance of structure and play, guidance and freedom. NGY engages imaginations, bodies, minds, emotions, and senses in order to create experiences that bring joy, balance, strength, and calm.
The NGY approach integrates traditional yoga and mindfulness practices with creativity and fun. Playful yoga poses, innovative breathing exercises, and nourishing relaxation techniques are paired with music, crafts, books, props, sensory elements, and educational info to create unique learning experiences!
NGY also acknowledges the developmental differences between age groups and needs of kids. How children learn, play, feel, and grow evolves over the course of childhood and isn’t always the same for every kid. NGY trainings and resources offer specific guidance for serving children, tweens, and teens in ways that best suit their individual needs.
