The Preschool Yoga Program at Parachute Express teaches our students breathing techniques (pranayama) and yoga poses (asanas) that enhance concentration, increases flexibility and balance, boosts confidence and relaxes their minds – PLUS IT IS SO MUCH FUN! Preschool Yoga is an effective way to help children to develop increased self-regulation, self-confidence, self-respect, positive communication and listening skills. Children learn to appreciate themselves and their peers, and tend to show increased empathy and compassion for others in our wee little yogi community.
But this yoga class is unlike any you may have seen – it is noisey, bouncey, giggly fun and filled to the brim with specially designed songs, games and yoga puppets. Our class opens with a visit from Kookoo Bird or Crazy Monkey, two exciting puppets who have made their home in our preschool yoga program, as we help them to calm their minds through our “Peace Begins with Me” mantra. We share in a mini salutation to the sun, engage in our favorite poses through songs and games, and then become restful in our secret garden (savasana) at the end of our class. Our class closes with a special wish each day: “May the whole world be filled with peace and joy, love and light, and lots of peaceful children.” Preschool yoga is offered twice per week for all interested little yogis, and is taught by our Preschool Yoga Teacher, Natalie, who is a Certified Yoga Teacher (200 hours) and is a Certified Kidding Around Children’s Yoga Teacher.
