West Portal is a great place to raise a family, that’s why one of our primary goals at Thriveability is to offer yoga classes for kids and families! In addition to our Adult Yoga Classes we provide a Family Yoga & Art 4-Week Series for children age 4 – 12 and their parents, as well as a Youth Yoga & Mindfulness 6-Week Series for kids age 4 – 12.
We truly believe that when taught mindfully, children can greatly benefit from yoga. There are important findings from yoga studies that show that yoga improves kid’s physical bodies and self-esteem, while also allowing for quiet moments of focus that increase their awareness and decrease stress. There is also a direct correlation between increased grade point average, less disciplinary problems, higher attendance and more positive self-image when kids do yoga!
