Yoga Rocks Kids@ Dearcroft
This program offers a playful approach to yoga for children ages 4 – 9 years old. We combine fitness, fun yoga poses, group games and which allow children to explore this form of exercise naturally. In this class children will develop body awareness, strength and flexibility. They will practice poses that improve balance, coordination and gross motor skills. The children will also be introduced to BRAIN GYM, which are physical exercises that help integrate the left and right brain function, encouraging whole brain thinking. Students work together in small cooperative games which encourages team work! As each child begins to master the yoga poses he/she will build self-esteem and confidence as well as increase focus and attention.
YOGA ROCKS INSTRUCTORS:
Antoinette Finelli & Marcia LeBlance will both be teaching the Yoga Program this school year. Both are Certified Yoga Instructors for adults and kids. Marcia loves teaching yoga to kids of all ages in English and in French! As Children’s Yoga instructors they have observed the benefits gained by students and they love to share this great activity with children of all ages.
The goal is to engage children of all abilities to become active, self- confident and healthy through this non-competitive activity.
