We believe that kids are natural Yoginis because of their “in the moment” attitude, innate flexibility and unlimited potential for growth; that balanced lives begin with balanced children; and that through Yoga, we can positively affect the health, well-being and confidence of the next generation.
Next Generation Yoga encourages children to use their whole bodies, independent minds and intuitive senses as we engage and educate their entire beings. We respect and encourage the developmental and individual needs of every child. Kids use their natural energy and enthusiasm to move, play, imagine and express themselves as they explore mindfulness, body awareness, positive health and Mother Earth.
Our interdisciplinary approach integrates the ideals of traditional Yoga with creativity and fun. Playful Yoga poses, animated breathing exercises and nourishing relaxation techniques are sprinkled with music, crafts, books, props and educational and sensory elements to create a unique learning experience!
Most importantly, we are sharing the greatest lessons of life from the start: how to understand, express and love oneself, inside and out.
Our Intention is that Children Always Feel Better After Doing Yoga and Enjoy These Boundless Benefits:
Next Generation Yoga has encouraged my daughters to be imaginative and creative, which is obvious when I see how they play, dance, or even in their artwork. They have been challenged mentally and physically in their Yoga classes, and have even developed the ability to relax on their own. Most importantly, NGY has taught my children to understand self-love and respect, and to give the same to others.
