YOGA THAT LETS YOU BE YOU

YOUYOGA Kids: Junior Yoga Instructor Program with Danelle Drury April 9, 2012

We’re looking forward to having your child(ren) participate in YOUYOGA Kids:  Junior Yoga Instructor Program.   You might be wondering what exactly is Kids’ Yoga?   Well, at YOUYOGA we believe it’s a combination of many things, and over the course of 6 yoga practices your child will experience the following:

First, we tap into your child’s creativity by pretending we’re animals or elements that occur in nature; such as  large mountains.  When we use our creativity we also learn to think for ourselves, and challenge our minds.

Movement is another aspect of YOUYOGA Kids.  By practicing asana, also known as yoga poses, your children will build strength and focus. They’ll also learn to appreciate their bodies, and what they are capable of accomplishing through consistent effort and awareness.

We’ll also focus on your child’s love of sound.  Connecting movements through song helps to build brain power, which is great way to increase memory.  The children will also learn the names of poses along with various breathing techniques.

The best part about YOUYOGA Kids is: During the 6th session each child will lead part of a yoga practice sharing with their families what they’ve learned.  That’s right……they’re going to teach YOU!  At the end of their instruction they’ll be presented with a Junior Yoga Instructor Certificate.

At YOUYOGA, we believe that sharing yoga with your child  can help promote self-awareness, discipline and self-confidence. It’s the ultimate learning through play!  We can’t wait to get started!  Here are the dates for the summer session, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there.  Each class is limited to 12 students, so don’t delay:

Introducing YOUYOGA Guest Blogger: Danelle Drury February 21, 2012

Danelle Drury, 200 CYT

 Danelle Drury– Hi! I’m Danelle and I have enjoyed working with kids for many years, working as a remedial reading teacher, fourth grade teacher, teaching drama and music to children from 1st through 7th grades, as well as working as a nanny. I was first introduced to kids yoga in 2006 when I assisted with children’s classes for Yoga Tree Ireland, and I’m so excited about helping expand YOUYOGA’s offerings to include classes for children. 

I have been practicing yoga myself for about ten years, and I’m so blessed daily by sharing yoga with others. I love how children’s yoga is a joyous combination of the young’s natural creativity, imagination, love of motion, love of sound, and their thirst for learning.  By sharing yoga  with children it can help to promote self-awareness, discipline and confidence in them. It’s the ultimate learning through play!

I look forward to your family joining me as YOUYOGA in Overland Park, Kansas launches its first 6 week Kids Yoga program beginning Wednesdays, April 4, 2012 @ 4:00 – 4:45 pm.  The 6 week session will cost $54 ( $9 per class), or you can drop-in for $12 per class.  Feel free to contact YOUYOGA for details: 913.645.7974.  See you in April!!!

Deadline for sign-up is March 28
