Summer Family Yoga!
Ahimsa Elmhurst South

with Heidi Liecker
Sundays: 6/23; 7/21; 8/18
From: 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Family Yoga is a fun and energetic class designed to engage children and their caregivers alike!

Knowing that it can be challenging to find time for fitness, family fun and a chance to relax, this class offers all of these things rolled up in one. Each class explores poses, breathing, and meditation in a child-centered way that still offers adults a chance to benefit at the same time.

Classes explore various themes to keep them fun and engaging for all as well as to offer support for families striving to maintain healthy lifestyles. After final resting pose, time is used for a simple art project that seals and commemorates the practice.

This class is designed for children ages 5-12 and their parents, grandparents, special adults, or caregivers. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

No previous yoga experience required.
Price: $20 for one adult with one child, $5 for each additional person.

Why Yoga for Kids?

  • Yoga can provide a lifelong foundation for well-being: physically, emotionally and spiritually.

  • Yoga breathing informs children of their energy levels and teaches them techniques for both calming and energizing.

  • Yoga postures build strong, limber, and healthy bodies. Verbal instruction improves body awareness and listening skills.

  • Yoga is noncompetitive, cultivating a stronger sense of self esteem and self acceptance.

  • Yoga improves interpersonal skills: social interaction, compassion and empathy.

  • Yoga provides a quiet space for introspection.
