Summer Activities for Kids and Teens offered at Be Here Now Yoga
Mar 31, 2015 12:00PM
The first program, More than Yoga with Padma, will combine acting lessons, improv games and yoga for children ages 6-12. This program will encourage children to work independently and in teams, exploring movement, creative writing and art. Children will learn skills for public speaking through creative skits. Padma, who has a yoga teacher certification as well as a degree in theater, combines her love of both in this workshop.
Abby Walsh will be offering two yoga programs during the last three weeks of July. The first, Kids Yoga, for children ages 4-10, will allow children to explore movement, asana and breath work, while playing fun yoga games and singing songs in a fun and safe environment. One enthusiastic parent says, “My kids can’t wait to go back this summer! Yoga has improved my eight year old son’s focus, reduced his anxiety and improved his strength and balance. My four year old daughter absolutely loves yoga and enjoys the relationship between movement, art and expression. They had a blast at Be Here Now Yoga!”
Abby’s second program is designed for teenage girls ages 12-15. Teen Yoga for Girls will focus on issues central to a girls’ experience. The group will work through issues of stress, body image and compassion through yoga, meditation and breathing techniques. Abby explains, “girls are able to be honest, compassionate and passionate in a safe space. They can talk about everyday challenges while being supported in their bodies. We always make time for a few giggles too!” Abby has her MA in Psychology and Education and has over 15 years of experience working with children. As a registered yoga teacher with 500 hours of training, Abby focuses on bringing yoga to students of all ages.
