Fridays, 4:30 - 5:30pm, 8 week series, Oct 11, 18, 25, Nov, 1, 8, 15, Dec 6, 13
Yoga can help children learn to be
more peaceful, more patient, and more healthy.They love to laugh and
role-play. They have natural curiosity, creativity, and compassion.
Competition, anxiety, bullying, ADHD, Autism, and obesity are only a
few of the challenges facing kids. Yoga can help! With
their ability to learn through moving, touching and physically
experiencing, kids can adapt quickly to the discipline that yoga offers,
opening themselves up to develop balance, social skills, and lasting
friendships. Yoga can also help kids release anxiety, decrease
hyperactivity, and manage strong emotions. It is a non-competitive way
to improve concentration, memory, and learning. If you're ready to foster your child's curiosity though yoga, join Laura for this 8 week series. Ages 5-10.

RYT 200, Laura has lived on the shoreline with her family for 20 yrs. Her quest to harmonize body, mind and spirit led her to begin practicing yoga in the late 90’s, and then on to the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy where she became a Licensed Massage Therapist. She has been actively taking classes and workshops ever since then. She dove head first into the yoga pool studying Kripalu, Ashtanga, Bikhram, Yin, Forrest, and Hatha styles of yoga to name just a few. Although she loves both a strenuous physical practice and time to sit and “be”, most importantly she feels her classes are a blend of these influences which make classes accessible to yogis of all shapes, ages and interests. She feels her style has been influenced by many of the wonderful people she has had the fortune to train with over the years. Among some of these are Bo Forbes, Beryl Bender, Rodney Yee, Ellen Heed, Anna Forrest and most recently Barbara Ruzansky of West Hartford Yoga where she completed her power yoga training. In addition to this training she has completed Level 1 & 2 in Radiant Child Yoga.
