New Programs at Enlighten! Kids~art~poi~trance dance...

CHILDREN'S YOGA- there will be exciting changes in the kids classes.

We will have an hour of Little Yogi Playtime from 5-6pm: Free-flow play with world music, musical instruments, and spontaneous poses or songs. Organic play time to share and explore. (birth to 3yrs)

Following that is Family Yoga from 6-6:45pm: for 3-10 year olds and their families. Come in a playful mood! We become many shapes of nature and animals with our bodies, making all sorts of fun sounds, singing songs, laughing, and having a good time. We also make poses together, learn compassion and sensitivity, while bonding and enjoying ourselves.

Starting children in a yoga program early on helps them to develop body awareness, self-esteem, and tools for handling stress healthfully. It also gives them non-competitive social interaction through exercise, increasing their strength and flexibility. These skills come with them off the mat and can inspire a life-long practice that provides health, inner peace and happiness.

ART CLASSES Introspective art program (coming this Summer): led by a local artist and teacher, projects will explore ideals, values, concepts of self and more. You don't need to be "good at art" to benefit from creatively expressing yourself.

MEDITATIVE MOVEMENT the yogini trance bellydance class will become more open and more meditative. We start in much the same way, with bellydance movements, and move into a longer trance space (free dancing, moving to the music while meditating), at which time you can dance, do yoga asanas or spin poi if you already spin. We also end class with 7 minutes of seated meditation.

POI SPINNING we are still trying to arrange poi spinning classes to begin this Spring or Summer. If you are interested in learning or teaching, please let me know!

MEDITATION CLASS Tuesdays at 5:15pm. Start with yoga asana warm up, then come into two 20 minute sessions of meditation, with an inspiriting reading in between. Learn to meditate and benefit from this powerful practice!

WHAT DO YOU WISH TO SEE? Please let me know!!
