Kristin believes a child's yoga experience should be FUN, SILLY, and ENGAGING!  Kristin encourages a love of yoga through playful yoga style games, lots of music, trust building exercises, partner yoga poses, strength building poses, and simple meditations.  In all of her classes, children will be encouraged to use their imaginations through creative and unique yoga style games. Yoga games  incorporate listening skills, co-operation, co-ordination and team building - essential skills for success in school & life. Children are introduced to counting in Sanskrit, and Sanskrit vocabulary. Playful props such as scarves, pom-poms, yoga blocks, pinwheels, and bells are incorporated in Kristin's classes to engage children to explore yoga poses in fun and challenging ways.  All classes end with mindful moments, simple meditations, breath-work, magic mist, sparkles and guided visualizations to help children experience wellness, success, happiness and a sense of peace.

PHILOSOPHY


Peaceful Planet Yoga incorporates fun, playful, and creative ways for children to exercise and explore their mind, body, and spirit as well as learn about yoga.  The use of animated poses and stretches promotes strength, flexibility, concentration, coordination and balance.  Breathing and visualization techniques help teach children to focus, relax and develop self-control.  It is important to provide a safe, positive and non-competitive environment for children to discover the joys and benefits of a yoga practice.  So that children may develop a life-long love of yoga, it is essential for kid’s yoga to be FUN!

In our children’s yoga classes, we use music and games to play/practice fun and challenging yoga poses.  Without realizing it, children are learning techniques to help their bodies become healthier and stronger and their minds to become more focused and relaxed.  Children learn through imitation, repetitive movement and song.  Young children will not always be in proper position in a yoga pose, which is completely acceptable.

The physical movements introduce children to yoga's true meaning: the union of body, mind & spirit.  Yoga is a discipline that can lead children on the path toward a calm and balanced mind, as well as help them to build a strong and flexible body, which will help them grow into mindful members of our Peaceful Planet.
