Imagination Yoga

Imagination Yoga is a movement, a platform to inspire real change in the lives of our children. Not only is it a fun and effective yoga class for kids it is alos our opportunity to teach them concepts like; compassion, concentration, relaxation and something we call being ‘Boldly kind’. Being a boldly kind person is a person that says “hello” to the new kid at school, a person that stands up for what is right, a person that uses their imagination like a tool carving out a space for peace and joy.
