Event description

Description

1 hour workshop focused on family yoga and therapeutic touch.

Adults and kids ages 5-10. This class is limited to 15 families as space is limited.

One adult + one child = $20

Join a fun, educational workshop that incorporates an Imagination Yoga adventure story and pediatric massage techniques for working with your own children. We will use child friendly and age appropriate stories, songs, rhymes and movement games to help further strengthen your connection with your child both verbally and non-verbally. This workshop is perfect for parents, primary caretakers and yogis alike.

This class:

  • boosts language and comprehension skills
  • provides a sensory rich environment
  • engages children’s imaginations and encourages movement
  • includes an abdominal massage routine for constipation, gas and tummy aches
  • some additional massage benefits may include:
    • promote relaxation
    • soothe muscle tension, may calm muscle spasms
    • assist in relief of pain & discomfort
    • improve circulation
    • support lengthening of soft tissue
    • decrease anxiety (if performed before bed, may benefit those with sleeping difficulties)

During this workshop, safe touch will be introduced in the most respectful manner for children. Communication prompts are given to expand interaction and engage children in both yoga and massage therapy. Children are empowered to know they are the expert on their own bodies and encouraged to speak up if something isn’t right in a yoga pose or in touch therapy. Together, we meet each child at their level and respect their personal space.

You will learn the skills to empower your child in a safe environment and to set an example for them in healthy boundaries and create positive associations with activity.

The workshop will have a fun, casual feel. You are encouraged to feel comfortable to take care of any needs that arise.

What to bring:

•a favorite blanket or your yoga mat
•small sensory items that create comfort for your child.
•water bottles
•as a tip prepare snacks if you wish; it’s common for kids to need something during the break or right after class
