Yoga Time for Kids

I work with people young and old, including people with injuries and/or disabilities, to be able to learn from yoga. I am also a licensed K-12 educator, bilingual (English/Spanish). I incorporate literacy and numeracy concepts into yoga programming that is developmentally appropriate for each age group I work with. Kids love yoga when we let it be creative and fun, and they also benefit from the quiet calming parts of the practice, as we find balance with both activity and rest. Artistic expression using a variety of mediums can also be incorporated into educational experiences as requested. Program cost: $45/hr--negotiable and also open to trade agreements. Contact Erin to schedule time and location that works for you via email This email address is being protected from spambots.
