Kid's Yoga - October sERIES

The Yoga Dojo has created a sunny, playful and nurturing environment where we will begin to learn about breath, emotional states, body awareness and self-love through a four class series. Our approach to teaching children is supportive and loving, as we work on listening to our own bodies and how to notice the world around us.

During the series, the children will learn about what yoga means, how to be apart of a community and how to take yoga into his or her community. Each class will build on the class before. We will learn through creativity, movement, discussions and games. The classes will take place at The Yoga Dojo on October 6, 13, 20 and 27 at 4:00 pm, lasting roughly 45 minutes each. The classes can only be purchased as a total series for $68. This price includes all material the little yogi will need.  To sign your child up, please click HERE.

Along with Erin’s speech and language career, she is currently working towards achieving her doctorate in education at Virginia Commonwealth University, where she is studying bringing mindfulness into schools. Erin loves working with children as she believes they have a contagious energy and spirit. She says, “children always see the best in people and want to simply share their love and energy with everyone around them, it is absolutely beautiful.”

Virginia Greene aka VA owns and operates RVA Mobile Yogis and Dancing Little Stars, a mobile yoga and dance company, bringing the children of Richmond dance directly to their schools and day cares in order to give all children the opportunity to be active and involved. She also is an adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University where she teaches introductory teaching courses to students interested in studying education. 

With her background in dance, education, and crossfit, VA wanted to find a way to stay active without straining her body. She also wanted to learn more about herself and the world around her, which brought her into yoga practice. She began her study of yoga this past summer under the Dojo's very own Adrian and Lauren, where she received her 200 hour training, followed by her Rocket certification under San Francisco yogi, Steve Pyka. VA is super excited to teach Children's Yoga at the Yoga Dojo (along with continuing her practice and perfecting her handstands!).

Ayurveda and Yoga Nidra workshop with Lynn Crounse, October 14, 2:30-7pm

Lynn Crounse of The Living Factory will be leading a three-hour Ayurveda workshop and one-hour Yoga Nidra on October 14.

What is Ayurveda, you ask? It is the sister science to your yoga practice. The ancient science of Ayurveda is really the art of living wisely, as it empowers people to make choices that nurture and sustain balance, wellness, vitality, self-confidence, and full self-expression. Ayurveda is a nature-based approach to healing that recognizes the unique difference of every individual ~ and, because every one of us is unique, every illness is unique; so, no disease, even if it goes by the same name, can be alike. Therefore, in Ayurveda, we seek to treat not the disease, nor the symptoms of the disease, but the person, the whole person, by attempting to dissolve the underlying cause of suffering and re-establish the fundamental state of wellbeing.

Learn about Doshas, Ayurvedic diet, and more, along with how to implement in your daily life. We will meet from 2:30-5:30pm, have a short break, then reconvene from 6-7pm for a Yoga Nidra, a powerful "Yogic Sleep" meditation practice.

This workshop is intended for anyone with a curiosity to learn, and is accessible to all levels of students, from complete beginners to advanced practitioners, as this is not a typical asana workshop.  Please note that space is limited to keep an intimate space. 

Cost is $40 by 10/7, $50 after.  Sign up by clicking HERE.
