Yogi School

Yogi School for kids ages 4 to 12

Every Saturday from 8 to 10:00 am.

Yogi school aims at instilling the values of patience, love, community, self-confidence, and self-discipline. Yogi school teaches children about their inner light, and how to share that light with the world. It teaches them to see positivity, and to alter their environment to be a positive space of growth. It carries on Swami Vishnu’s mission, that each individual will be an inspired leader of peace- both of his/her own mind, and also external world.

The program is based on the four paths of yoga as taught by Swami Sivananda:

  • Karma Yoga
    When we practice karma yoga we are learning about  sharing and serving others. We learn to do  our actions with love and attention.
  • Raja Yoga
    When we practice raja yoga we learn how to breathe and exercise our body. When our body is flexible and strong, we can concentrate and feel good about ourselves.
  • Jnana Yoga
    Jnana yoga makes us think about who we are. It helps us understand how we are all connected. It makes us understand that we have come to this earth so that we can learn to live in peace and harmony.
  • Bhakti Yoga
    Bhakti yoga allows us to open our hearts, and to express ourselves.  We learn how to be devotional and caring to all forms of life.

Schedule:

  • 8-8:30 am:  the children convene to complete a small task that could be anything from shaping bread and feeding the goats, to painting and folding laundry. This is the yoga of self-less service.
