A beautiful way to grow
Little Yogis is a mobile Yoga & Mindfulness program for kids in Ontario aged 2.5 - 13 years. Our tagline is “Positivity & Movement for Busy Minds” as we aim to improve physical, mental, and emotional health through our curriculum. We partner with schools, childcare centers, non-profit, and for-profit organizations to improve the health and wellness of communities.
The importance of yoga in schools
Our approach empowers youth by allowing them to become more aware by learning how to relax their bodies and minds. They learn more about their minds, and how they can affect not only their own attitudes and approaches to life, but also the attitudes of others.
Build Positive School Communities
Yoga teaches acceptance and tolerance of others. In practicing yoga, kids learn early in life that all living beings are to be cherished and respected as they are, thus helping to create more peaceful local communities and a more peaceful world in our future.
Tools for Life
Yoga encourages a mindfulness that creates a positive outlook, increases confidence, and builds resilience tools that kids can use their entire lives. Children need the tools to succeed through life’s constant ups and downs and yoga can help in so many ways.
Encourage a Healthy/Active Lifestyle
Any exercise program begun in childhood helps kids to remain physically active and healthy as a lifestyle. However, yoga takes that further by teaching not only the healthy habits mentioned above, but also a healthy approach to eating and the ability to calm oneself and focus the mind.
Little Yogis is partners with Jumpstart Charities. To find out more about applying for funding to bring our program to your school click here.
