“The secret of all nature…is to be found in the soul of a child.” - Maria Montessori
Angel Bear Yoga™ was created as a way to nurture the spirit of a child and foster a sense of wonder for the natural world using yoga as the tool. While so many yoga programs focus primarily on the physical aspects, it was our desire to create a program that was inspirational to children on all levels – mind, body and spirit. The meaning of the word yoga is “to unite.” We see the word unite in many forms – to unite children with parents through family quality time, to unite children with the greatest human character traits, and to unite children with the natural world. We introduce physical poses as symbols for the character traits in our lives and fostering deep appreciation for nature. We believe that children today need more than what they’re being offered. They need to learn to go within, to see their inherent goodness, and the beauty that surrounds them.
