Kids Yoga Series at 8 Limbs Yoga Phinney Ridge
Oct 8, 2018| $140
Yoga helps kids get in touch with their bodies, strengthen and relax their muscles, and develop coordination, focus, and confidence. We will practice kid-style asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing) in a playful, supportive, and safe environment. Through experiential games we introduce the yamas (how to treat others) and the niyamas (how to treat yourself), deepening a child’s sense of respect and awareness. Yoga is universal! It’s not dogmatic – just healthy fun! Drop your kids off at yoga, and have an hour to yourself. Ages 5-10 years.

About the Teacher: Maritza Hartnett
What to expect in Maritza’s classes: Maritza teaches from the Heart, a place that connects directly to the experience of breath and motion. She guides her classes in a dynamic and profound way: non-judgmental, full of compassion, respect, knowledge and understanding of everyone’s sacred space and needs. Maritza encourages students to attune with the pulsations and vibrations of their heart and breath, to relax in every exhalation, to find alignment as they feel and to observe what is happening inside. Ultimately to surrender to their experience as it is.
Main Influences/Styles/Traditions: Kripalu Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Bharata Natyam Dance –Classic Devotional Dance of India
