About Young Mountain

 

Yoga has proved to help young people tremendously with self-regulation and focus. Small children gain coordination motor skills. Teens gain self-acceptance of themselves and others. All children benefit from the many facets of yoga when brought together in a structured environment that fosters acceptance, safety and compassion. Young Mountain at Shine Yoga Kids will give you the necessary tools to create this environment while successfully facilitating an effective (and safe) yoga class.
