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,
pinwheels, and bells are incorporated in Kristin's classes to engage children to explore yoga poses
in fun and challenging ways. All classes ends 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.
