Summer Therapeutic Yoga Program
Parents, now that the school year is almost over and kids are in vacation-mode, it’s a great time to consider Arka Yoga & Art’s Summer Program!
This Summer, Arka Yoga & Art is offering a therapeutic yoga program which is designed to help improve attention, focus, self-esteem in children. The program also helps reduce children’s stress, anxiety, and worries and improves self-regulation management.
Kids will learn breathing and relaxation techniques.
Kids will learn to understand and control their emotions and learn to navigate through them in a positive manner, rather than suppressing them.
Kids will learn visualizing and positive affirmation techniques.
Kids will learn techniques to improve their attention span and listening skills.
Kids will cultivate positive attitudes like compassion, tolerance, group effort, good behavior etc.
This program is based on increasing self-awareness through introspection, sensory integration exercises, mindfulness approach, games and fun; where the child connects better with himself and the world that surrounds him.
I have employed my 30 years of knowledge and experience working as a developmental therapist and special educator for children with special needs in the development of this program. I have also utilized my training in sensory impairment integration and behavior analysis, as well as my experience as a yoga teacher with specialization in children, with the goal of helping kids integrate themselves better into their daily challenges, whether its at school or in other settings.
The program is divided in two phases. The first consist of 6 classes, twice a week for three weeks. During this first phase the child will internalize the vision of self-knowledge and self-regulation, turning it into a positive habit of his/her behavior and growth as an individual. The self-regulation will turn the child’s attention and focus into effectiveness. The self-knowledge will provide the tools to manage stress, anxiety, fears, and worries. The second phase consists of three more classes, as a follow up, for reinforcement and assessment of what the children have learned.
The first 6 sessions (Phase 1) of the program would start Tuesday June 1st through Thursday June 20th, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The first 6 sessions must be purchased as a package to maximize the learning process. Individual classes will not be offered as it would reduce the efficacy and sequencing of the program.
The second 3 sessions (Phase 2) is scheduled for Thursday, July 6th, Tuesday, July 11th and Thursday, July 13th. These last three sessions must also be purchased as a package.
Some children assimilate all the techniques during the 1st Phase, others may take longer than 6 classes.
This therapeutic yoga program is effective for up to 6 participants at a time.
