Blog : Zev Yoga Introduces Sprouts Children's Yoga Series

By Katelyn | Jan 7, 2015 | in

When we make a list of our New Year’s resolutions, we often find ourselves writing something like “hit the gym more often” or “lose 10 pounds,” but a couple weeks into the year the list is forgotten at the bottom of a desk drawer. This year take a slightly different route and consider the health benefits of practicing yoga. For those looking for a healthier lifestyle in 2015, yoga is the ideal exercise to strengthen and calm the body, mind, and soul all at the same time. It’s a workout for people of different ages and experience levels.

Zev Yoga offers classes for all levels, from beginner to expert, and starting January 25 will host a special children’s yoga series. Sprouts Children’s Yoga is aimed at increasing flexibility and focus, while creating a fun environment for children to learn and grow. The series will be taught by Amie Reagan who is certified in yoga and earned degrees in both early childhood development and childhood psychology. She has firsthand experience in how breathing exercises and meditation can impact children at home and in the classroom. Reagan funneled her background in yoga to the school environment by teaching yoga in her own pre-k classroom, and over the years has introduced yoga to people of varying ages. Zev has become one of the most popular yoga studios in the seacoast and with locations in Portsmouth, Exeter and Dover; it’s easy for residents to find a time and location that fits their schedule.

The Sprouts Children’s Yoga series will run on Sundays for six weeks beginning on January 25 and will be split into two age groups to best cater to children of different ages. Children ages four to six are encouraged to attend the classes on Sundays from 1 – 1:45 p.m. which will focus on fun and the imagination by incorporating flexibility and motors kill exercises. Afterwards, from 2:15 – 3 p.m., children ages seven to nine will learn the basic yoga techniques associated with focus, centering, and breathing, through games and group work. The classes will be held at the Zev Yoga Studio at 16 Market Square in Portsmouth at $80 for the six week series.
