Children’s Yoga – Venessa and Kayla
June 20 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am$15
Each class provides breathing exercises and mindfulness techniques to help calm and balance the nervous system and increase intellectual receptivity; games and activities to help release mental tension and improve mood and attitude; and yoga poses to improve coordination and circulation, build strength, flexibility, balance and focus, and integrate left and right hemispheres.
Venessa Bowers, 200 RYT s a licensed certified social worker – clinical, a certified clinical trauma professional, yoga instructor, and a Usui/Holy Fire Reiki Master. She specializes in working with children and adults who have been affected by traumatic experiences. She uses creative expression and mindfulness as treatment modalities in her clinical work in conjunction with more traditional therapeutic interventions. Venessa’s teaching style seeks to create deep thought, inner connection, and release of things no longer serving the individual. Her classes can have an therapeutic feel to them, but they are not therapy classes. Her approach to yoga uses the Karmic path, which is the “yoga of action in the service of others” and her style has been called “gritty and real.” Venessa completed her 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training with Rebecca Sirman Yoga at YogaVibez in Ocean City, completed her 20 hour certification in children’s yoga with Radiant Child Yoga, and completed 40 hours of Trauma Center – Trauma Sensitive Yoga training with David Emerson and Jenn Turner at Kripalu.
