Kids Yoga with Amy Ives and Jessica Jacobson
Saturdays 12:30 - 1:45 pm | April 7 - May 26 **No Class April 14** | 7 weeks = $100 |
After teaching family yoga for several years and working with kids in many ways, we are excited to announce our new kids yoga class starting this April!
Registered kids yoga class for ages 4-8. Exploring yoga through games, music, art, and other age appropriate activities.We've designed a session over the course of seven weeks to build skills and confidence through fun activities, games, art, song and movement. With each class building on the next, the children will come to learn through a predictable rhythm of the class, repetition throughout the session and new material presented in each class. Kids will be learning the wisdom of the yoga tradition from body awareness, self regulation, compassion, mindfulness, breathing techniques and relaxation while having fun playing age appropriate games and activities. We hope to see your kiddo's there!
Amy Ives is an Early Childhood Educator with over 20 years of experience working with children, youth, and families. In 2012 Amy participated in a Kid's Yoga Teacher Training Workshop with Maalaa of Kids Yoga Now. After completing the workshop Amy has been teaching yoga with preschool and elementary school classes, with strong start programs, with the children she works with as an ECE, and with her own children.
Jessica Jacobson has been practicing yoga for 20 years and became a Yoga Alliance registered E-RYT 200 instructor in 2006. Since then she has trained to teach in the Anusara tradition and later studied traditional Ashtanga in India in 2010. Since her son was born in 2012, Jessica’s approach to yoga has deepened and simultaneously become more playful. Jessica co-taught a family yoga class with Amy Ives this last year and found this to be a great way to build community and share her love of yoga and mindfulness with her son. The excitement for a family/community class has only grown and Jessica is excited to be a part of the new community class being offered at Yoga on 7th.
