Children’s Yoga

Baby yoga exerciseI utilize yoga in my work with children as well, whether at Congregation Kol Emeth’s Family Service, or Camp Kesem, a camp for children who are living through the illness or loss of a parent to cancer.   I use yoga and meditation to guide the children through their feelings and offer a unique way to express themselves and offer themselves comfort, as well as offering them a way to experience our sacred Jewish stories through bodywork.  Children enter yoga positions in their daily lives, so it is natural that more and more schools, camps and synagogues are using yoga as an entryway to teaching them to listen to the wisdom of their bodies.
