ASA Yoga & Nia

By Ariel Arsac-Ellison

Our wonderful Kids Nia/Yoga class was full of fun, friendship, and exploration.  Children mastered the 5 stages of Nia as well as key yoga poses such as cat/cow; down dog; up dog; airplane; moon; eagle; and a favorite, savasana. They worked with the Emotion Dance and Freeze Dances during Nia time and “yoga clock” during yoga time. They learned about healthy foods and explored things that they love in life through art work. They learned to still their minds with mudra (hand positions) along with mantra (repeated sounds).  Ask them about their “Sa – ta – na- ma” exercise!
