Yoga for Middle School Age – Fridays 17:00-18:00 – Downstairs at The Forster Institute
In our Kids Yoga classes there is a beautiful balance between spontaneity and structure. The kids help create the class with guidance from Rocci. We use stories, games, music, breathing and poses to create a journey in different times and places around the universe. We end each class with a short quiet time in which we learn the skills to relax.
Yoga Practitioners have long seen the benefits of yoga including stress and pain relief, improved circulation, a sense of wellbeing and inner peace. Yoga is a great remedy for the stresses found in the school environment. It encourages concentration, positive thinking, confidence, self-esteem and self-expression.
Yoga keeps the bones healthy, strong and aligned, and the muscles around them supple. It helps achieve good posture, a straight spine and healthy lungs. Balancing poses help keep focus and build concentration. Poses named after animals and geometric angles encourage imagination and play. Yoga is all inclusive and expands the mind and heart to embrace differences between peoples.

- Develop body awareness
