YOGI SQUAD

Bringing stories to life through yoga, music, and mindfulness

FORT WORTH, TX   |  https://yogisquad.org

Mission

Yogi Squad's mission is to educate and equip students of all ages with tools that help them navigate stress and live their best lives. An early introduction to yoga teaches students to develop their minds for better focus, allows them to maintain their youthful flexibility, and teaches them tools that are useful on and off the mat for making positive, empowering choices. Yoga releases tension, promotes confidence, and increases self-esteem and self-awareness. Through the creative incorporation of selected children’s literature, books come to life with movement and yoga. Students benefit from the development of positive associations with books and reading, physical activity, social and emotional learning exercises, and mindfulness techniques.

Yoga and Stories (ages 6-10)

A 45-60 minute storied yoga experience. Students will learn breathing and focusing techniques, flow through simple yoga poses (themed with an accompanying high-quality children’s picture book), sing songs, dance, and play games. Students will strengthen their bodies and develop positive self-awareness while cultivating their own set of mindfulness tools that will become instrumental throughout their daily lives. All classes incorporate reading interest levels and appropriate stages of development for a specific age group of students.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
At-risk youth

A 20-30 minute class designed just for toddlers. We sing silly songs and listen to short stories that promote literacy, movement, mindfulness, and self-awareness. Students will develop fine motor skills and muscle strength; nurture self-esteem and body-awareness; gain confidence and encourage creativity; all while participating in an outlet that stimulates social interaction.
