Cats, Bridges and Trees: Yoga for Children

Saturday November 17, 2018       Time 10:30 am - 3:00 pm       4 hours 

Fee: $65.00       FCC Fee: $50.00 (Promo Code)                                                   

Children love to move!  With yoga, children are involved in a fun, non-competitive physical activity. All children, regardless of age or ability can do yoga. Yoga uses children's imagination while they become stronger, more flexible, and more aware of how to control their breath and their body movements. Come explore yoga poses and activities; have fun as we relax, breathe and stretch, and receive information on how to use yoga in a child care setting.

Objectives:

  • To learn basic yoga poses.
  • To explore how yoga helps with learning.
  • To understand how breathing can calm or energize children.
  • To practice in small groups how to make yoga fun for young children.

*Suitable for intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with infant/toddlers, preschool and school age children, including children with extra support needs.

Presenter: Dorothy Fizzell. Dorothy has been practicing yoga for over 30 years, and it is a big part of who she is. She is fully certified with several yoga associations and is a co-teacher of a 200-hour yoga teacher training program in Surrey, BC.  Dorothy has also been an Early Childhood Educator for 30 plus years, and recently worked on re-developing the Safe Spaces Bullying Prevention Program as well as facilitating this training.

*Bring a bag lunch ( hour lunch).

*Wear comfortable clothing and bring a thin mat or a towel.
