Workshop Overview:

Structuring a pre-teen yoga class can be tricky; games and songs may seem juvenile, yet a traditional adult flow is often too much. In this workshop, we’ll explore ways to make the KAY outline more suitable for yogis between 10-12 years old. We’ll take a look at meditation, pranayama and movement for this specific age group. We’ll discuss the best options for music, games and activities. Pre-teens are at that awkward age between being a young kid and a teenager. Ensure your KAY class delivers that perfect mix of silliness and seriousness!
