Students practice taking their yoga off the mat. They’ll put breathing exercises to the test with yoga games and role-playing exercises, develop their own meditation practice and advance their physical practice with more challenging poses such as arm balances and inversions.
Students delve into a practice that more closely resembles what you might find in an adult yoga class, yet they are given freedom to ask questions. Poses are geared toward their growing bodies and themes are geared toward experiences and level of development seen in this age group.

Yoga Meets Art: (11-13)
