The premise of Kriya Yoga is that we are a miniature version of the whole cosmos, a microcosm–an evolving universe within the macrocosmic world. Within each of us hides the supreme creator activating every action through the breath. Hence the name Kriya: meaning that any work or “kri” is being done by the power of the indwelling soul or “ya”. Yoga is the means of uniting this correspondence between microcosm and macrocosm—realizing the truth within the union of the individual self and the Supreme Self.
In addition to the emotional and spiritual benefits of this practice, Kriyas can teach meditation, breath control and calmness, mental purification and eradication of bondage from the desires of the ego. This Kriya class provides an immediate spiritual experience and has been likened by Paramahansa Yogananda as the “easiest, most effective, and most scientific avenue of approach to the Infinite”.
FOR KIDS 4 - 12 YEARS OLD
60 - 75 minutes
Kid Yoga is a fun and creative approach to yoga that can be very helpful for children whose bodies are still developing. We use animated poses and basic stretching exercises to promote strength, flexibility, coordination and body awareness. We also teach breathing and visualization techniques that will encourage the kids to focus, relax and develop self-control. We break for snack and often incorporate storytelling with lessons of courage, compassion, caring, giving, & etc. A theme is usually carried through out the class using interactive games and yoga postures for children to learn about animals and nature. *We accept all kids ages 3-7 in our yoga room. However, if one child's behavior adversely affects others we must reserve the right to respectfully decline participation by the disruptive child.
