The mission of Next Generation Yoga: joyful, playful self-expression for children.
believe that kids are natural yoginis because of their “in the moment”
attitude, innate flexibility and unlimited potential for growth; that balanced
lives begin with balanced children; and that through yoga, we can positively
affect the health, well being and confidence of the next generation.
NGY encourages children to use their whole bodies, minds and senses as we engage
and educate their entire beings. We respect and encourage the developmental
and individual needs of each child. Kids use their natural energy and enthusiasm
to play, sing and imagine as they explore mindfulness, body awareness, health
and Mother Earth.
Our interdisciplinary approach integrates the fundamentals of child development,
traditional yoga ideals, creativity and fun. Playful yoga poses, breathing exercises
and relaxation techniques are sprinkled with music, art, books, and educational
and sensory elements to create a unique learning experience!
Most importantly, we are sharing the greatest lessons of life from the start:
how to understand, express and love oneself, inside and out.
Our intention is that children enjoy these boundless benefits and always
feel better after doing yoga:
• Develop strong, flexible,
healthy growing bodies
• Increase concentration,
balance and body lllawareness
• Receive the gift of confidence
• Spark creativity of ripe
• Cultivate a peaceful,
relaxed state of body
• Acquire much needed tools
• Have fun with anatomy,
health and environmental lllawareness
• Encourage peer & social
• Exercise self-reflection
and tolerance towards lllothers
• Inspire Yoga in other
areas of life
• FUN, FUN, FUN!
