Yoga (meaning union or yoke) is the practice of accessing and integrating all aspects of our true nature — body, mind, and spirit — in the pursuit of inner harmony. A dedicated and intentional yoga practice that includes breathing techniques, behavioral guidelines, and physical postures can be incredibly valuable for kids of all ages.

Yoga students in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades (Hoesly and Brown’s class) will have Yoga on Mondays from 3:05-4:05. Yoga students in 3rd grade (Rodriguez), 4th and 5th grades will have Yoga on Fridays from 3:05-4:05.
