YogaKids (Ages 6-10 yrs) with Karin Decicco

Introducing a kids yoga program taught by Karin DeCicco that focuses on the whole child; intertwining the physical postures of yoga with fun and interactive games, crafts, music, dancing, and more! We will provide an atmosphere that encourages creativity and confidence while also teaching the importance of breathing, relaxation, and listening to your inner "self."

Sign up today and give your child the opportunity to move their bodies, have fun, and meet new friends in a non-competitive and joyful environment!

Karin DeCicco, RYT 200 registered with the Yoga Alliance, has been practicing yoga since 2000. She graduated from her first teacher training program in 2010 and received further certification in Prenatal Yoga in 2011 after becoming pregnant with her son. Karin just finished her YogaKids Foundations Training with YogaKids International, and is currently pursuing her year-long YogaKids Advanced Certification. Her teaching style emphasizes breath synchronized movement and body awareness in a fun and invigorating environment. Her passion is to revitalize the bodies and minds of her students, reminding them that finding our inner joy and happiness is what we are all here to do. Karin's mission in teaching yoga to kids is to spread the joyful and heart opening nature of yoga to children of all ages so that they learn to nurture, honor, and love each other and themselves. Her evolution from yoga student, to yoga teacher, to mother has all been part of her journey in passionately working with expectant mothers, families, and children!"

Yoga Nidra with Sandra Coyner

Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of deep mediation used to relieve tension and anxiety by promoting profound relaxation. Sometimes referred to as yogic sleep, one could compare it to being in a very long Svasana; but, your conscious awareness will be guided by my voice and your state of relaxation will be much deeper.

Yoga means union and, it is through yoga, that we begin the process of learning who we truly are inside as we become awakened to our inner voice. On the flip side, nidra means deep sleep. Have you ever experienced slowly awakening from a deep sleep yet, at the same time, noticed that part of you is still lingering with the dream? It is a wonderful, drowsy, happy state somewhere between being asleep and being awake with a heightened sense of self-awareness. That is Yoga Nidra.

Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati describes Yoga Nidra in this way:

"In Meditation, you remain in the Waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on. However, in Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and go to Deep Sleep, yet remain awake."

Please dress comfortably. After brief discussion, asana and pranayama, we will sweetly transition into a half hour of yoga nidra.
