Find Calm in the Chaos
Are you and your kids feeling tired but wired at the end of the day? Anxious, tense, and stressed? Struggling to relax and calm when faced with big emotions or when it's time for bed?
Did you know that:
30 % of tweens (children between the ages of 10-12 experience headaches and difficulty sleeping as a result of stress.*
25% of children between the ages of 13 and 18 experience anxiety disorders.*
10% of children are actually diagnosed with depression beofre the age of 18.*
Kids are overstressed and overtaxed. I've worked with kids in schools and learning from home bringing my background in education and yoga together to offer brain nourishing practices for stress relief and resilience.
Using the tools of yoga and mindfulness, kids and parents can learn to relax, relieve stress and anxiety, sleep better, improve emotional regulation, increase empathy, and improve their mood. It also helps build strength in muscles and bones, improves flexibility and mobility in the joints, teaches healthy movement and posture, and develops physical balance. Practicing yoga with kids also teaches them how to be more mindful.
Join me in weekly group classes for both kids and adults, private one-on-one yoga coaching sessions, or courses. During private lessons, I include yoga practices specifically designed to target your needs and goals. All sessions are online from the comfort of your own home at a time that is convenient for you. Busy schedules can make it challenging to fit in time to drive to yoga classes -- so I'm bringing the yoga directly to you!
About Sara Addington
It is my passion to help parents and kids learn tools to understand and manage their emotions, and connect their mind, body, and breath to feel confident, resilient, and find their own unique path.
I found yoga as a teenager myself when I was looking for a way to help manage anxiety, stress, and chronic fatigue. Yoga has helped me build resilience, feel empowered, find self-connection, and helped ease tension and pain. I have taught yoga to people of all ages from pre-school to seniors and everywhere in between. I have trained in movement and healing studies throughout my life and continue to study as a lifelong student. I also have degrees in Psychology and Special Education, and I am a certified Yoga Teacher RYT200 with certification as a Kids Yoga Teacher.
Through movement, we can connect to ourselves and find self compassion. In every kids yoga class, I work to bring my passion for education and yoga together to offer a complete, age-appropriate Yoga practice that includes breathing instruction, relaxation techniques, stretching and strengthening poses using stories, music, games, and imagination.
Join us in the fun!
