Next Generation Kids’ Yoga Spring Series

NGY_ChildrenYoga7

Our Next Generation Yoga (NGY) kids’ yoga classes bring creativity, consciousness, and community together. Developing a yoga practice is the perfect way to ensure that kids and young adults maintain healthy life habits that can serve them as scheduling demands increase, social pressures build, and life stressors become more prevalent. Our NGY kids classes promote inner strength, body awareness, concentration, confidence, self-esteem, a feeling of well-being, respect for others, and love for one’s self, inside and out.

Kids’ Yoga Spring 10-Week Series March 31 – June 9*

  • Ages 3 – 5
  • Thursdays, 3:30 – 4:15 p.m.

This yoga class brings song, story, and games together to create a dynamic and fun sharing. Each class builds on the next and around each student’s curiosities as they learn yoga through social interaction, repetition, and play. Kids will also learn how to relieve frustration, improve motor skills, and increase attention span by actively following directions. Help your kids build the foundation for a healthy and fit lifestyle while having fun!

Kids’ Yoga Spring 10-Week Series March 31 – June 9*

July Newsletter: Opening the Heart

Dearest Friends,

We sit down to write this month’s newsletter in the wake of both tragedy and joyous celebration. Our hearts are shattered by the senseless deaths in South Carolina. At the same time, as proud allies of the LGBT community, we could not be prouder or more elated at our nation’s decision to recognize marriages for all loving couples.

We emerge from the emotional upheaval of the previous few weeks with a renewed reverence for the strength of an open heart. We have witnessed its ability to relentlessly persevere in the face of unimaginable adversity; to forge connections and bridge impossible divides; to break but to also heal time and time again.

We hope to support you this month and always in approaching the world and each other with strong and able hearts, so that you may greet adversity with collaboration, anger with compassion, animosity with love. For when we are brave enough to come together as humans with hearts open and giving, we find that, truly, Love Wins.

With hearts wide open,
Your Kula
