Private Yoga 

This is a special and unique offering to serve the children and teens in our community. A private yoga session is personalized to your child specific needs. Many children are feeling stress very early on, which effects their happiness, ability to adapt to new situations, connect with others, sleep well, and to concentrate properly. I help children with anxiety, self awareness, self esteem, coping techniques, and skills to encourage them to see their own unique and innate abilities.  I offer 30-40 minute sessions for children & teens.

What they will learn- Sessions often include, breathing techniques, yoga postures, mind & body awareness techniques, visualizing, energy/chakra balancing, affirmations, and an understanding of the 5 pts of yoga: proper exercise, breathing, nutrition, relaxation, and positive thinking/meditation. sessions are scheduled by appointment, or 805-434-1924

To create a serene sanctuary we like to access each situation to make sure the space stays comfortable for all who desire to practice. Let's talk about a plan for your family.
