Starfiishmoon Yoga is designed to give children an opportunity to learn valuable skills through playing, exploring, and exercising their mind and bodies. Yoga benefits us (kids and adults) in different ways: increase in strength and flexibility, helps in learning how to relax and body awareness, breath awareness helps with focus and balance, and many more.
Starfiishmoon Yoga was created by Sarah Donahue, who has been teaching children for over 5 years in a classroom setting and has been practicing yoga and mindfulness for many more. She has studied yoga in USA, China, and Southeast Asia. After receiving her Registered Yoga Teacher Certification in Hoi An, Vietnam, she then completed her Children's Yoga Instructor Certification in Manhattan, NY.
Starfiishmoon Yoga classes incorporate fun asanas, or poses, that engage the children to exercise their bodies, use their imaginations, and help calm their busy minds. Breathing exercises, also called pranayama, help children discover the magic of mindful breathing, which can be practiced for the rest of their lives. Partner poses, group poses, games, and singing bring laughter and collaboration into the class. Mindfulness exercises, meditation, and savasana help encourage stillness, peace and reflection.
