Yoga for Heroes Kids Workshop

  • Workshop offered by Breathe Easy and Smile Yoga Co.
  • Ages 8-12 years
  • Cost:  $25

One recurring theme in yoga is the idea of meeting challenges with patience and perseverance.  The history of the Barrier Islands has countless stories of watermen and members of the Life Saving Service who embodied these virtues, facing the challenges of a livelihood dependent upon the water.  This 90 minute youth yoga program at the BIC begins with storytelling about these real-life heroes and then relating that back to the core issue of embodying heroism in our own lives.  Children will be asked to reflect on their own heroes as we practice yoga poses that embody certain elements of the character of the hero (i.e. balance, strength, bravery).
