Moving Spirit LLC, & Creative Kids Yoga® – Adult and children’s classes & Yoga Dots®
The goal of Moving Spirit and Creative Kids Yoga® is to make both disciplines of yoga and dance easy, fun and accessible to everyone of all ages and abilities. We create a community where participants have fun growing and learning. We “move our bodies to grow our brains!” Our classes and workshops complement wellness and mindful practices which emphasize the whole person and aim to connect the body and the mind. Participants come away with a tool box of postures and movements to implement in their day to day living.
Children in our society also experience stress that can affect their living and learning. Anxiety, restlessness, behavior problems and self-regulation can be addressed in fun yoga and movement-based activities In the Creative Kids Yoga® classes learning, playing and integrating the Yoga Dots® enriches all areas of children’s lives. The rewards are numerous as the child’s developing sense of “self” expands. Yoga practice adapted for children stimulates brain development, engages creative play and integrates multiple intelligences (how children learn).
In all of the kid’s classes – Toddlers to teens – Yoga Dots® are used to define personal space as well as give kids the opportunities to move more freely in general space. Yoga Dots® are a fun way to get kids interested in yoga and movement, because they are kid and environmentally friendly with no harmful phthalates. They also enable creative play, games, language arts, spatial relationships, math and science. This supports academic learning in an innovative, integrative way.
Yoga Dots® promote creative problem solving, support focus, help kids to self regulate, develop critical thinking, increase concentration, and organize any space. Yoga Dots® support a fully functioning body, which stimulates a fully functioning brain!

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness: For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
