4/26-5/9/15: Backstroke, Bedtime Yoga & Route Reading
We're off to the jungle today! Kids will follow jungle vine routes on the climbing wall, practice alternating arms with zebras in the pool, and stretch like a giraffe on the mat.
Swimmers will be focusing on backstroke. Classes will look very different for a 2 yr old and an 8 yr old, but everyone will learn age/level appropriate skills.
Climbers will trek through the jungle as they follow taped routes, learn about climbing grades and communicate with partners.
The second portion of our "take yoga home" session will focus on bedtime routines. We'll get our energy out as stomping-sleeping hippos, focus with balance poses, and get grounded with supine poses.
4/12-4/25/15: Breaststroke, Sun Salutations, and Figure 8's
We're hanging out with our furry friends today. We'll find homes for cute puppies, stretch out as dogs, and track our progress with dog bones. The swimmer above is from Seth Casteel's book "Underwater Dogs-Kids Edition". I have it cut up and laminated in the pool :).
Swimmers will be focusing on breaststroke and underwater swimming. Classes will look very different for a 2 yr old and an 8 yr old, but everyone will learn age/level appropriate skills.
Climbers will learn to tie figure 8 knots and do lots of toprope climbing! We will incorporate knot tying into all of our climbing games.
Yogis will salute the sun, and short routines they can practice at home in the mornings. On week 2, kids will take home a sticker chart to practice their sun salutations every morning.
