Nat'l Museum of Dance to start kids Yoga Motion program

In an effort to encourage dance & creative movement among young children, the National Museum of Dance is beginning a new children’s program in February: Yoga Motion. Yoga Motion will promote strength, flexibility, focus, and creativity through yoga poses and creative movement. Get those pint-sized dancers ready to move!

The 10-week long class will include a series of Yoga poses geared towards children such as Cobra, Lion, and Flamingo! Creativity will also be explored through movements like trees blowing in the wind & jumping in an imaginary puddle of honey! The children will play with beanbags, balls, and a parachute that looks like the night sky. Relaxations will take place near the end of each class in which everyone will lie back and imagine floating on a cloud or walking through a quiet forest. Yoga Motion will bring fun, laughter, and the pure joy of movement to young children.

Yoga Motion is geared for children ages 3 to 5 years old and will take place on Tuesday mornings from 9:30am to 10:30am from February 7 through March 27, a full eight weeks of creative movement! The cost of the 8-week class is $80 per child, or pay $12 per class. Don’t miss your chance to sign up for this program because there is only room for 10 kids per class. Save your spot today!

Peg Clark, an Occupational Therapy Assistant and Yoga Instructor, has taught Yoga and Fitness since 2003 for both children and adults. Peg has taught a Parent & Child Yoga Class at Greenfield Elementary School and an after school program at BOCES.
