p011_1_03Yoga at Boulder Knoll is practiced in two ways. The first is as a group. Once a week, the children gather with a teacher and move through a series of poses together. The goals of these “yoga circles” are to introduce children to new poses, to practice using the breath to help develop concentration and inner calm, and to have fun while moving together. Children also have an opportunity during morning work time to practice yoga on their own, to move through favorite poses or practice calming their own minds and bodies. In both practices, children are encouraged to listen to their own bodies, to be safe and to enjoy this time “on the mat.”

Yoga for Life
In yoga we learn to slow down, breath and care for our bodies.
