little om BIG OM brings fun yoga and mindfulness classes to kids & families around the Madison-area! We bring our mobile program to studios, schools, libraries, camps and other locations around the community.
Our team of talented instructors use playful and creative activities to teach the many asanas (poses) of yoga and principles of mindfulness to kids of all ages. We feel strongly that exploring yoga should be a positive experience for kids, and it is our goal to introduce our students to skills and strategies that can help them on and off the mat!
A yoga practice can increase awareness and focus, improve physical fitness and posture, improve breathing techniques, reduce stress and increase confidence, and we love offering kids opportunities to benefit in these ways at a young age. Kids love our classes because learning new ways to use their bodies and minds is exciting and rewarding, and we love seeing our students building confidence in themselves!
We use songs, games, props/toys and stories to explore these class components:
Standing Active Asanas (Poses)
Yoga Games and Partner Activities
Sitting/Lying Asanas (Poses)
Pranayama (Breathing Exercises)
Relaxation and Mindfulness (Yes! Relaxation. Kids learn to calm themselves and hold still!)
