 Six-hour Workshop


yoga_kidsHere is a beginner daily practice to fortify the identity of your child (Who am I). This practice is for children from 5-10 years of age.

This course invites both parents and child(ren) to interact in a workshop to establish a daily balancing routine using yoga, breath and meditation. This 6-hour workshop is taught over six weeks. Parents are encouraged to do this practice with the child until child can do alone or until the practice has been done for 40 days.
