We are excited to announce the launch of our Yoga Discovery & Art After School Enrichment Program. Look for 6 week series classes under workshops/events of our website. We typically offer two sessions each school semester and take a break in the summer for our summer camps.
Spiral Tree Yoga & Wellness’ Afterschool Yoga & Art Club (ages 4-7ish) is a fun and exciting way to either introduce new students to yoga, or continue to foster an interest in those that are familiar with it, possibly through family, yoga cards or videos. Children's yoga is all about sparking interest, relationships, curiosity, and imagination. With a diverse mix of yoga and mindfulness activities, children will learn a variety of yoga asanas, including partner and group poses, as well as breathing games and meditation techniques. Several movement games offer opportunities for creative self expression. A portion of each class will be used to create a piece of art that correlates in some way with that day's yoga exercises. Typically, the artwork is nature based, using recycled or natural materials, and involves purpose as well as process.
Some of the wonderful benefits of yoga for children are:
Spiral Tree Yoga & Wellness' Warrior Girls program (ages 8-12) is all about girls coming together into an equal, positive, non-judgmental zone to explore and share thoughts, emotions, personalities, similarities and differences and celebrate them!

Classes will cover breath and meditation techniques, a variety of poses, from simple to challenging, partner and group poses, mindfulness games and activities, and expressive and reflective art making, such as poetry, journaling, drawing, painting, etc.
