Would You, Could You With a Goat?

Goat Yoga

Would you try yoga with a Goat? How about with a cat? Or with your children?

All kinds of community Yoga classes are being offered this month around DeKalb County. Go ahead and stretch yourself with something different. All are free or support non-profits.

Yogi Bears: Free Family Yoga (No experience needed!); Tuesday, October 16, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.; Sycamore Public Library, 103 E State St, Sycamore, IL

Think adults are the only ones who could use some quiet time or methods to unwind and destress? Imagine if we modeled these types of positive self care methods as a tool for the young. How might that help them manage: change, stress, or navigating through life in general? From home to school or just in their own little worlds…everyone deserves a time and place to “just be.” Plus, it’s a fresh way to keep active! This class is for everyone. Especially for those who “Don’t do yoga.” 😉

Join us for a short and sweet 45 min- 1 hour monthly session open to children (usually 2-6, but siblings of all ages welcome!) and family to learn a variety of fun, creative activities to practice healthy self care methods that will extend far into adulthood. Library cards are NOT required! Free to the community! Mats not required. Just wear something comfy 🙂

And remember, Monkey see monkey do! Let’s start them early! Below you will find a link for a list of reasons why children who learn body awareness, physical activity and
mindfulness could benefit Yogi Bears. If you have any other questions please message Angelina at Find What Moves you.
