Yoga for schools
"Maine Kids Yoga does a wonderful job adapting to the needs, energy levels, and interests of young children. They teach children to love their bodies and to take care of themselves in a way that is fun for all involved. -- Shannon, Preschool Teacher
Sitting in a classroom for hours on end is difficult for children with growing bodies, minds and curiosities. Not to mention all the stress and anxiety even the youngest children are feeling these days. Bringing yoga into schools is a great way to add a healthy movement experience to the daily routine that is good for their bodies, minds and overall sense of wellbeing.
Maine Kids Yoga offers school enrichment classes for children in preschool through middle school. We tailor our yoga sessions to the needs of the children, offering an individualized, developmentally appropriate and non-competitive activity for kids of all ages, learning styles and physical abilities.

We like fishing, but we'd rather teach folks how to get their yoga on!
In addition to sharing yoga with children in schools, we also offer trainings and workshops for parents, educators and childcare professionals. We collaborate with our friends at A Barefoot Education to offer quarterly workshops at our studio, and we also offer in-house professional development tailor-made for individual schools.
