Yoga for Children in Schools
Studio 202 was created to offer the community a space to connect in movement, arts, and wellness. This passion came from Katie, the Owners, appreciation for learning meditation and breathwork as a child. Since we began in 2016, our all ages community has been offering Children’s Yoga in Schools on the North Shore, and we are honoured to be able to support our community in this way. By supporting children and their community with simple tools, we offer them life-skills, to help them live happier, healthier lives and be inspiring leaders of the next generation!
We are seeing more and more youth and adults struggling with anxiety, due to living in a world of over-stimulation and being constantly on the go. By offering simple tools such as breath, movement, and mindfulness, we find greater balance, peace + joy. We discuss important topics, relevant to the age group, to help them discover their own potential and strengths.
Our greatest joy is when students bring these tools into their everyday lives and share with their families and friends. We know it takes a village to raise a child, and strive to ensure the entire support system of the child is on-board, also understanding the tools we offer.
Benefits of Yoga for Kids:
- Greater self-awareness and ability to communicate feelings, needs and wishes
- Learning about emotions and tools to manage themImproved sleep and focus
- Less anxiety and greater self-confidence
- Promote healthy body-image and relationship with self
- Learning healthy coping skills for resiliency and handling challenging situations
- Appreciation of their gifts and value to the community
- Understanding of empathy, healthy relationships and boundaries
- Development of collaborative and leadership skills
Children are naturally drawn to the simple practices of yoga and mindfulness, and these tools become foundations for healthy coping skills for the rest of their lives. Watching children bring these practices into their daily lives and share it with their families brings us such joy!
