Mission

Jessica Kos Birney & Young Yokes is pleased to host an after school kids yoga program at Enatai Elementary!

We will take great care in the introduction of yoga to your child, sharing age-appropriate and applicable poses, breathing, and mindfulness work.  Kids yoga classes are not the same as adult classes, that's for sure.  We encourage communication, laughter, curiousity, and community. We will move, sing, dance, play; and then we will learn to harness our work to practice things like stillness, listening, and body awareness. At this age, yoga is not about doing poses "right" but about the experience of the pose in connection with every day values and goals.  Tree pose for example can feel wobbly but what can you do to keep from being blown over!  

As a teacher I focus heavily on what kids CAN do and empower them to celebrate that space.  Class size will be limited to around 20 students, so please register soon to save your space. We have a lot of fun and I look forward to working with your children.

What are the Benefits of a Kids Yoga Practice?

Think full-body; muscles, bones, heart, lungs, mind, & energy; yoga has shown through research that it can have a tremendous impact on kids and support their performance at school or on the sports field. If you have interest in learning more, I highly recommend the website Yoga4 Classrooms as they have compiled and maintain the largest catalog of kids yoga research to date.   ​

In our classes we will also discuss and apply important life lessons like what it means to be strong in all aspects of life; body, mind, heart, and community. We will tackle a different topic each week while applying this work to the physical poses and experiences at school.

What to Expect & How to Prepare

Yoga Club will begin promptly after school at 2:30pm.

Be prepared for yoga by wearing comfortable clothes you can move in and if you have one, bring your yoga mat.  

Class will look like this:

  • Connection (how is everyone, what are we working on)

  • Move (Sun Salutations, poses, games)

  • Breathe (breathing exercises)

  • Focus (mindfulness work)

  • Rest (poses that encourage relaxation)

  • Reflect (writing or drawing time, closing)

The class will close at 3:30pm and we will travel as a class to the front doors for pick-up.  Thank you for being on time to gather your little ones.
