Springtime Family Yoga with Danielle Gismondi M.Ed, RYT-200

Join Danielle as you explore yoga with your family!  This springtime 4 week series focuses on connections with your child and your child’s peers, and will work around the theme of growth. Root down like a tree, wag your tail like a dog, and row your own boat!  Be prepared for:

Yoga reduces stress, anxiety, and depression and increases focus and happiness and can be a wonderful way to connect with your child.

Yoga for Kids with Danielle Gismondi M.Ed. RYT-200

Is your child ready for their own yoga class?  This is the one to try!  In this drop-off class, kids practice yoga together.  Still including elements of family yoga, we will explore yoga through character traits of some of the Hindu deities, as well as learning the stories behind the asana (poses).  Basic precepts of the 8 Limbed Path of yoga will be broken down for young children. Your child will:

  • Practice social emotional skills
  • Learn self-regulation techniques
  • Invite kindness and gratitude into their lives
  • Practice non-harming

All of this is possible through the physical practice of yoga.  There will also be time for children to dance, write, draw, listen to stories, learn thai massage and partner yoga.

Appropriate for children aged 7-11, but feel free to contact Danielle at danielle[email protected], if you have a child out of the age range that you think would be totally engaged.

Wednesdays 4:15-5:15pm May 11, 18, 25 June 1st
ages 7-11
$58 for all 4
$16 drop in
