Dance Dance Yoga is a fun, energetic, 45 minute class that focuses on storytelling and imaginative play through yoga and creative movement. We will use props and yoga poses to teach fine and gross motor skills, body awareness, and attentive listening. These little yogis will also learn to follow directions, cooperate and socialize and explore new movement through copycat dance and the “Rev it up and Run” yoga game. We will end each session with some calming visualizations and breathing techniques designed for little ones. Dance Dance Yoga is the perfect introduction to yoga and expressive movement for 3 to 4 year olds!
Miss Rebecca is a mother, yoga teacher, and children’s book illustrator. She received her Yoga Teacher Certification from Nature Yoga in 2013 and has been teaching ever since! She loves to teach little people how to express themselves through movement, art, and imaginative play. She now teaches Dance Dance Yoga at St. Sylvester School in Palmer Square and is super excited to bring it to Nature Yoga!
Miss Jill took her first yoga class in 2008 at Nature Yoga Sanctuary and never turned back. A former athlete, Jill was surprised and amazed by the physical and mental effects of the yoga practice. In 2012, she dove deeper and received her 200 Hour Teacher Certification at Nature Yoga under Mark Lerro.
Jill has taught children’s tennis classes for over a decade and is excited to bridge her love of yoga and teaching children into one format: Dance Dance Yoga.
