Yoga for Kids with Kim Burns | Monday 4:00 – 4:45 pm
Yoga for kids helps provide what the brain and nervous system its needs for enrichment and self-regulation. Self-regulation is the ability to focus attention, control emotions and manage thinking, behavior and feelings. As an infant, we start out in life with developmental reflexes that help us engage in the world and learn coordination, balance and sensory motor development. These primitive reflexes should develop into postural reflexes over the first year of life. Primitive reflexes that don’t integrate successfully can lead to developmental delays and difficulty with self-regulation.
THE SENSORY BENEFITS OF YOGA
- The body receives an incredible dose of full body proprioception (sense of our body position in space) while different muscles are engaged in different poses. Additional proprioception is also achieved through ongoing joint compression and traction.
- Body awareness, body in space, and motor planning are facilitated and promoted while engaged in the poses.
- Prone extension and full body flexion body sensorimotor positions are used throughout the activities specifically designed to integrate reflexes
- Yoga promotes meaningful, purposeful, and FUNctional activity…which is when the brain responds the best!
- Most importantly, Yoga is a great tool for all kids needing sensory integration or just to promote normal development! It provides a very powerful dose of sensory input targeting the integration of primary reflexes.
When a child makes a movement that replicates the earliest reflexive movements, we ensure that the information goes to the exact place nature intended it to go. Nerve Growth Factor is created every time we stimulate any part of the brain or body. Daily practice is necessary for improved connections and carry over.

Lymphatic Yoga with Kim Burns | Tuesday 7:00 – 8:00 pm
The Lymphatic system plays a vital role for your immune system by removing waste and toxins from the body and fighting against pathogens. It collects toxins and moves them through the lymphatic vessels to end up at the neck, where it returns to the blood circulation for cleansing.
Lymphatic Yoga is a series of poses that follows your lymphatic system’s natural sequence to remove waste and toxins from your body. Diaphragmatic breathing and muscle contraction is the body’s way of stimulating the lymph vessels and returning fluids back to the blood for removal. My Lymphatic Yoga sequence mirrors the way your body moves fluid using muscle activity and gravity to improve detoxification and decongestion.
