MINI YOGI: Requirements and Description

MINI YOGI

Tired of trying to practice at home with children climbing all over you as soon as the mat is rolled out? They want to practice too! This toddler class is linked up with our Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday morning Vinyasa Flow classes so moms, dads and caregivers can enjoy their practice separately from their children. It is a fun introduction to yoga for your little ones. This class is mostly free play that gives your child a chance to explore, discover and move in a safe environment, which is vital to their emotional, social, and physical development. 10-15 minutes of the class is teacher led yoga including age appropriate physical and mindfulness exercises. Children will act out animals, sing songs, practice breathing exercises, and more. Ages 2 – 6

KIDS AERIAL YOGA

Kids Aerial is the perfect class for ALL kids: they will learn to build strength and control in the body and concentration in the mind as they swing and hang in the Aerial Silks. Kids will leave tired and happy~ they won’t even realize they have done a workout! This class is also excellent for the young athlete who would like to increase arm and core strength. Recommended age is 6-14. Parents of children under 8 years old will be required to stay at the studio for class. Parents of children over 8 years old are welcome to stay in the studio for the class but it is not required.

Kids Aerial Yoga Level One is a fun introduction to aerial yoga. In this class kids will learn the basics of how to be safe in the silks with conditioning and strength building as the focus. A few basic tricks are included as well. Yoga and mindfulness will be incorporated in this high-energy workout. (Beginners)

In Kids Aerial Yoga Level Two, students will build on the skills and strength developed in Level One and will discover more difficult tricks, wraps and drops. Based on our foundation of strength and safety, kids will find the freedom to become creative and expressive in this class. (Intermediate – Kids Aerial Level One experience required)

In Kids Aerial Yoga Level Three,students will continue to build strength, flexibility, and creativity in this challenging class. With careful instruction, students will explore more intricate and demanding tricks requiring high levels of strength and coordination. Students may explore both the aerial hammock and aerial silks in this class.  (Advanced – Kids Aerial Level One and Two experience required)

Aerial Dress Code:
Fitted, stretchy leggings or yoga pants that cover the backs of your knees as well as shirts with short or long sleeves that cover your armpits will offer the most comfort in the silks especially for those new to aerial yoga. Men may want to wear leggings under athletic shorts. No shoes or socks in the silks. No jewelry. Long hair should be pulled back so it doesn’t get caught in the silk or impair vision while upside down.
