Elementary Schools

Kindergarten to Grade 6

Elementary students are energetic, impressionable and often easily distracted. Yoga for this age aims to improve strength, flexibility and co-ordination in an environment of cooperation, respect and well being. YIMS yoga classes help children aged 6-12 learn through age appropriate yoga poses, mindfulness exercises, partner poses, yoga games and more to build body awareness, increase focus and foster self-esteem. All our kids yoga classes meet Alberta Education curriculum objectives and fit easily within the school setting.
