Yes!!! YFL provides yoga mats and props needed for every class. Your child may bring their own mat if the prefer. Please be sure your child's yoga mat is labeled with their name so their mat does not get put away with the YFL mats.
Please be sure to pack a light snack (fruit is great) and water for your child.
Comfortable clothing that is easy to move in is best. Children with long hair should tie their hair back out of their face.
Generally our yoga classes are 30-60 minutes depending on the location and preference of facility. We can make any length of time work. Even a short yoga practice is better than none!
We limit the class to 20 or less students. Most classes have 6-15 students.
Yoga is a physical activity, and like ay other physical activity, injuries can happen. However, our teachers are specially trained in anatomy and correct yoga postures to help assist your child in learning proper mindful movement awareness. We want the best for your child, and we hope to inspire a lifetime of body appreciation and mindful movement exploration.
All YFL afterschool program participant guardians will need to fill out a general form with contact information, a short questionnaire so our YFL teacher can learn about your child to better plan their classes, a general waiver and image release. We do not show faces on any photos or post on social media without permission. Depending on location, there may also be a Safe Key or other similar form needed.
