My littles, ages 2 & 5, embraced their inner yogis this summer (Read → Yoga + Donuts) and it has been incredible to watch the pride, patience and pure joy exude from their mini practices.
Since my oldest daughter is now in Full-Time Kindergarten (excuse me while I weep), my youngest and I have enjoyed a few mommy and me adventures. One playful morning we ventured to Hot Feet Fitness in Burien, where my friend (and beautiful yogi), Teanna gave us a private demo of her Kids Yoga class. Mila melted my heart with her sweet passion and excitement…
Hot Feet Fitness is a spacious, energetic studio with heaps of natural light (perfect for these photos!)
Mila connected with Teanna right away and I adored their mutual energy…this photo of ‘Lion’s Breath’ is perfect. ♥
Teanna even incorporated the ABC’s of Yoga into the practice, which stimulated engagement and playful movement.
These photos are worth a million words…but here are 5 Reasons Yoga is Good for Kids:
1. Increases self-esteem
2. Sparks creativity
3. Decreases stress
4. Encourages kind social interaction
5. Increases academic performance
With our overstimulated, media-based lives, it’s important to let yourself (and your kids) slow down, reconnect and embrace a little bit of playful peace.
In addition to Kids Yoga, which is typically on Saturday’s at 11AM, Hot Feet Fitness offers 3 additional fitness methods:
HFF Workout is a high intensity 21 minute long body weight work out.
HFF Stretch is an enjoyable 21 minute long full body stretch.
HFF Yoga is a 51 minute long yoga experience.
Each of the methods are done in the studio at about 90 degrees with 35% – 40% humidity.
