Yoga Play in Schools

Yoga Play is a unique way to connect with students outside the confines of a desk. I offer students a fun way to learn traditional yoga poses and sequences, as well as play games and tell stories. Ideas for Yoga Stories include (but are not limited to):

  • a holiday (e.g., going to the beach, camping, or African safari)
  • a re-enactment of a piece of literature (e.g., Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, How the Grinch Stole Christmas)
  • an event or period in history (e.g., Explorers, The Renaissance, The Ice Age)
  • a science concept or topic (e.g., dinosaurs, the digestive system, insects, mammals, botany)

A portion of each class is dedicated to breathing techniques, mindfulness and meditation.

Whether you have a single visit in mind or an ongoing 10-week program, whether it’s for children aged 5, 10 or 15, I can tailor a class or program for you.

Why yoga for kids?

Yoga is a wonderful way for children to develop a variety of skills in a nurturing and non-competitive environment. Children will be able to relax and have a laugh while developing strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits of yoga, we will also learn breathing techniques to help settle our minds and relax our bodies. Each class will encourage creativity and imaginative interactions with others. Together we will experience a greater awareness of ourselves and the world around us.

How about yoga for the adults?

Yoga Play can be especially fun when the parents are involved, so perhaps a Parent/Child class can be a fun way to bring parents into the classroom. Or better yet, if the teachers need a break, I can design a session for a teacher in-service to encourage camaraderie and group-building.

Pricing

Rates for a single session are $100 for the first hour, $30 for each additional half hour.

Rates for 5 classes or more are $85 per class for a group of 10–15 participants, $95 for larger groups.

The school should provide a quiet open space to hold an adequate number of students and their yoga mats.

Payment must be made in advance. A 50% cancellation fee will apply to all cancellations made within a week or less of the agreed upon session(s).
