routines coordinated with the individual’s level of development. Students will participate in five essential yoga practices: music, breathing practices, cleansing practices, body postures and deep relaxation. These practices are designed to strengthen and stretch the entire musculoskeletal system, balance the nervous system, increase breathing efficiency, improve body awareness, improve communication skills, increase each student’s ability to self regulate, and of course provide a relaxing and engaging experience.
