Don’t we all wish we had started practicing yoga when we were kids! Buddhi Yoga offers Kids Yoga classes with Roberta Rogers every Friday from 4-4:45pm for children ages 3-7. Yoga offers a noncompetitive environment in an inclusive setting taught by an instructor with over 15 years of experience. Exposing children to yoga at a young age has a long list of benefits that effect them positively on every level.
Children these days have packed schedules and sometimes move at a frantic pace. Combining that with more screen time than any other generation, our kids are experiencing an unprecedented amount of stress. Yoga teaches kids from a young age methods of self-help such as breathing, meditation and healthy movement. There are no winners or score-keeping, just a great opportunity for children to develop body awareness and self confidence in a fun and open environment. Other benefits of kids yoga:
Roberta Rogers has been a pre-school teacher at La Jolla Methodist preschool for over 15 years. She expertly weaves storytelling into the class to create a dynamic and educational environment. The postures are all named after animals fostering a strong connection to nature and the world around us. One class the children may travel to the Brazilian rainforest and another they will be exploring the ocean. Occasionally her husband accompanies the class with live music, adding another wonderful element to this imaginative class that teaches kindness and compassion for others.
Parents have the option to drop off their children or meet other parents in the Buddhi Yoga community while you wait. Shop Shade Boutique and stock up on gifts, jewelry, lounge wear and the cutest yoga clothes in town. Ask our friendly staff any questions you may have about yoga and maybe pick up a class pack and try a class yourself. Children should bring a mat to class and wear loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to move around in.
