This Yoga class for kids will explore the role of the Chakras in our yoga practice. Chakras are the 7 spinning wheels of energy located along the spine. Each Chakra has a color of the rainbow associated with it and a place it resides along the center of the body. Our Chakras are associated with our mental and emotional well-being. When our Chakras are balanced, we feel comfortable, confident and in charge of our own emotions. We will use mindful movement and breath to awaken our awareness of these energy centers. Understanding the superpowers of energy centers gives us the tools to understand ourselves better and empowers us to lead a balanced, peaceful life.
