Building strength (plus upcoming schedule)

What a great week! Our focus this week was on strength. And, boy oh boy, are the kids S T R O N G. Whether it was at Friday Night Yoga Club, our Girls on the Run class, yoga at the Rec Center, or in regular studio classes, I saw smiles from ear to ear. I heard many "look at this!" moments. And I felt self confidence building. 


"Strength" in yoga is this unique combination of body strength AND mind strength. So how do we work on this in class?

For older kids (tweens)
Active sequences to build endurance and stamina. Moving, balancing, focusing, and flowing continuously to great music. 

For school aged kids
Block work to build muscle strength, focus, and determination. Paired with group balance challenges where we need to work together and trust each other.

For preschoolers
Yoga obstacle courses to blend balance work with big-body movement (using our muscles to release all of that energy!). 

Regardless of age, they are all using a whole lot of muscle AND mind strength (for all of that balancing and breathing!) And they are creating proud, strong moments for themselves. So when I saw this quote, I immediately thought of all the strong kids in Butterfly Kids Yoga classes. 


We'll continue to work on this (and more!) this week -- our last full week of classes before the holidays. Check out the schedule and see you on the mat (details below)!
