On March 21, 2015, Edmonton based kids yoga and creative movement company, Glow Yoga, will be offering two sessions at the “Spring Into Inclusion” conference at the Alberta Teachers Association presented by Community Options. The hands-on session is entitled “Breathe, Stretch, Play & Relax” and will have attendees doing exactly that! This dynamic and engaging exploration of kids yoga will begin with an overview of the theoretical side of kids yoga, including topics such as anyone can teach yoga, the benefits of kids yoga, yoga in the classroom, and preparing the yoga lesson. Then the fun begins, as we transition to the practical application of kids yoga by experiencing a variety of meditations, breathing exercises, games, poses, and relaxations. Attendees will also be provided with a mini kids yoga manual, boasting over 100 kids yoga inspired activities! This session is ideal for Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Early Educators, and other child advocates as it will provide a wealth of knowledge and belt full of tools to confidently integrate yoga into their daily practices and programs.
With the fast paced, performance based, high stress, world our children live in today it’s more important than ever to provide them with resources to effectively recognize, manage and reduce stress. Yoga can help counter the pressures and stress of life, and can also provide a sense of self-awareness, physical connection, and community. When children learn techniques for self-health, relaxation and inner fulfillment, they can navigate through life’s challenges with a little more ease.
“Kids Yoga is also a fantastic outlet for creative expression,” explains Vanessa Pouliot, Founder and director at Glow Yoga Kids, “I believe that there is nothing more powerful in life than allowing our inner light to shine through, brightening the world around us with our own divine uniqueness.”
Kids yoga, and the resources shared at “Breathe, Stretch, Play & Relax” will also support you and your child/ren in finding fun and inspiring ways to let your light shine. Tickets for “Spring into Inclusion” are still available, and can be purchased by emailing Community Options at: firstname.lastname@example.org
