For our busy Harlem Yoga Families: All Harlem Yoga Studio Kids classes are offered at the same time as Adult Yoga Classes.
* We offer KIDS and Teen Packages in 5 or 10 class cards as concepts build on one another and regular attendance allows kids to grow physically, mentally and emotionally.
In this fun and creative after school class, kids will start their school-week off right – relaxing and re-energizing while they explore the physical and mental practices of yoga. (Parents get to relax and re-energize too in the adult class right next door!) In each class we will “play yoga”, moving our bodies in ways that engage our creativity and the environment around us through both traditional poses as well as Kid specific games, songs, and meditations. Children will become familiar with how they feel, how their bodies move through space, and basic alignment. Balance, flexibility, and coordination are explored as poses are practiced and bundled in creative Sun Salutations. Kids get a chance to teach the poses to each other and work in partners and groups. Conscious breathing is introduced as a method to focus the mind and feel peaceful.
Teen Yoga is a challenging and fun class that not only demonstrates the foundation of a strong and safe physical practice, but is a safe space to explore body and mind and a deepening understanding of the self. Through breathwork, movement, meditation and discussion rooted in yogic philosophy, we will explore how our unique footprints fit into the larger blueprint of our local and global communities. Especially in a place like New York City, teens are often forced to have a tough exterior, shaped by the heavy expectations and responsibilities of peers and adults alike. In this hour-long, 10-week course, in addition to safely learning challenging poses and relaxing into restorative ones, we will explore different ways to manage stress, cultivate balance and moderation and be more confident in our value towards self and towards others.
In this unique class, children deepen their understanding of both the physical and mental practices of yoga through games, songs, discussion, and Art. Kids learn multiple poses, beginning to focus on alignment, and building strength and coordination as they practice from week to week. Balance and focus are enhanced through both traditional and “Kid only” poses, and partner/group asanas add additional creativity. Kids get a chance to teach one another and create their own poses and sequences. The mental aspects of yoga are further explored through a weekly art project that follows the theme of each class. The concept of meditation is introduced as a means to calm the body and mind
