Yoga for Kids

Kids are growing up in a very busy, hurry up world, and stress physically and emotionally is starting so much younger. With busy schedules, school pressures, competitive sports and social media our kids need to learn the techniques at an early age to stay centered and grounded. Yoga brings an awareness to themselves and others, in a practice of mindful movement both physically and emotionally. Treehouse Kids is now offering classes for Willowsford residents. Our classes are designed to teach yoga poses, breathing, and relaxation exercises which cultivate a calm mind, increase strength and flexibility, improve gross and fine motor skills, improve concentration, and give children the tools to manage stress in their daily lives. Each class is designed with age appropriate movement, theme and music. Together lets empower the kids to build their strength from the inside out!
