YOGA AND MINDFULNESS IN SCHOOLS
Marta Gil is the Founder of Young Flower Yoga - a Yoga and Mindfulness program for children and youth.
She offers the classes as before- and after-school programs that are designed to fit into the existing after-school curriculum offered at public and private schools throughout the Westchester County area.
Students learn age-appropriate yoga postures. They explore various breathing and relaxation techniques, as well as learn about yoga history and philosophy.
Session lengths range from one-time classes to 10-week programs.
The program includes set-up, all materials, instruction, and clean-up.
Children's Classes - Classes for children age 4-11.
Young Flower Yoga classes for children are a fun and safe way to learn not only Hatha Yoga postures but also some breathing techniques and methods of relaxation and concentration.
