Yoga Kids

Introduce kids to yoga’s true meaning through physical movements

Children deal with many distractions, temptations, overstimulation and peer pressure. Yoga presented in a child’s language can help counter the stress experienced by little ones living in a hurry-up world.

Here are some of the many benefits of teaching yoga to kids:

  • Develop body awareness
  • Learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way
  • Manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation and healthy movement
  • Build concentration
  • Increase their confidence and positive self-image
  • Feel part of a healthy, non-competitive group
  • Have an alternative to tuning out through constant attachment to electronic devices

Lindsay O’Brien

Lindsay began teaching yoga in 1998 after returning from India and then completing her teacher training at Sivananda’s Ashram on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. She has since studied many healing modalities including Praunic Healing and massage therapy and carries a U.S. nursing degree and registration. Teaching yoga to children is a joy for Lindsay. She provides a loving, creative environment for them to explore their inner-worlds and grow as budding yogis. This has a ripple effect and spreads into their lives when they leave the mat. She moved to Switzerland nearly a year ago with her husband, four children, and her German Shepard. When she is not immersed in family life, you can find her in the Sauvabelin forest or in a café writing or studying.

Carlos Silva

Carlos was born in Venezuela and has been an avid yogi for over 15 years, practicing Hatha and Vinyasa yoga over the years with a variety of teachers. Carlos received a master in International Education from Framingham University in Boston, and a master and certificate of advanced studies in School Psychology from The College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York. As a professional, Carlos feels an immense joy whenever he has the privilege of making a meaningful connection with children of all ages, and helping them reach personal milestones. He supports his training on developmental and educational psychology with the humanistic belief that people know what they need and can be the main agent of change and healing in their own lives.
