And now, a message…
Often in yoga class we’re encouraged to hearken back to our days as little kids and *gasp* be playful! Because children are curious and open-minded and natural yogis, with less bills to pay and no concept of 9 to 5 except for maybe breakfast and dinner! As BIG kids we endeavor to redeem that innocence and carefree attitude, but imagine if we had learned how to deal with stress and anxiety when we were just tots? Yoga for kids is definitely gaining traction these days and for good reason, we can really underestimate the potential stresses in a little tykes’ life. Or bigger tykes, like say grade schoolers dealing with divorce, or middle schoolers struggling with twinklings of adolescence.
And so it is with pleasure and reverence we introduce to you one of our newest sponsors, ChildLight Yoga (you may have noticed their vibrant square in the upper right corner). In brief, ChildLight offers childrens and family yoga classes for “kids” of all ages. They also offer specialized trainings for we grown folks to better assist and lead the small fries in their own playful yoga journey. Founder Lisa Flynn is a mommy and longtime yogi who developed the program out of her own experiences having kiddies, and budding yogis, at home. If you’re a yoga teacher thinking about adding children’s yoga classes to your repertoire of service, or interested in Yoga 4 Classrooms, we recommend checking out ChildLight for further education, since we may not be kids necessarily, but we are always students. There are several locations up and around the Northeast region. [more info]
And thus concludes this word from our sponsors…you big kids can get back to work now!
