ABOUT HUMBLE WARRIOR YOGA
At Humble Warrior Yoga, we use yoga as a vehicle for playful learning! Core strength, bilateral coordination, and balance are our fundamental building blocks to our yoga curriculum. These fundamentals build important skills such as body awareness, focus, memory, confidence, strength, and flexibility. In turn, these skills (tying their shoes, tinkering with small objects such as Legos, running, climbing, and sports) help strengthen the mind and body for more complex learning and movement; refining both gross and fine motor coordination.
By introducing the basics of breath work, simply bringing awareness to the power of their breath, we aim to empower children with the fact that they can have control over their mind, thoughts, and actions. With repetition, and as our yogis get older, their breathing practice can evolve into a mindfulness practice. Here they can use their breath as a tool to slow down, even in the busiest of moments. In slowing down, our young yogis are given the opportunity to mindfully respond to a fearful or stressful situation instead of reacting to them.
Empathy awareness is the binding ingredient that gives our program truth and purpose. We believe that empathy awareness is the key to living a full and authentic life. We cultivate empathy awareness through the practice of kindness towards oneself and others. We also understand that living in a state of pure happiness is not realistic, therefore, we allow time and space to uncover and dissect feelings. We hope to build familiarity and comfort through the vast range of emotions while offering strategies to help children through the ups and downs.
Humble Warrior Yoga provides children with yoga, mindfulness, and empathy awareness. Our ultimate goal is to nourish and guide the minds and bodies of our youngest citizens towards kindness to oneself, their community, and eventually the greater world through humility and strength. Each class curriculum is catered to the unique characteristics of each group of yogis. We value kindness, community, and creativity and hope to meet your Humble Warrior Yogi on the mat!
In our digital, and fast paced world, Humble Warrior Yoga aims to empower children with time and space to cultivate a nourished mind and body. We use yoga and movement as a means to express and learn about our ever changing and complex emotions and how they manifest within our bodies. To help children accept and process emotions we introduce mindfulness and breath work as the foundation to start learning about and understanding their body and mind. We believe that the time is now to start educating and empowering young children with strategies and practices to build confidence, empathy awareness, and a strong foundation of strategies to express, release, and process complex emotions.
