Family Paths ofrece Yoga para Padres y Yoga para Familias. Las clases de Yoga para Padres ayuda a los padres ofreciéndoles tiempo personal para practicar ejercicios de estiramiento y de respiración, los cuales ayudan al cuerpo y la mente a relajarse, dándole a usted un tiempo de calma y relajación profunda, y ayudándole a reducir su estrés.
Yoga Familiar provee una manera divertida y juguetona para que usted y su hijo/hija se conecten y aprendan habilidades importantes para calmarse/relajarse. Esta combina movimientos simples y “poses” de tradiciones de yoga con música, juegos, y narración de cuentos. Las clases se ofrecen a padres/encargados de niños y a sus niños entre las edades de 2 y 5 años en varios locales de la comunidad. A través de historias y movimientos, su hijo/hija explorará el mundo de la naturaleza, las estaciones del año, el reino animal y su conexión con usted. Usted será alentado a darle apoyo a su hijo/hija durante cantos y movimientos guiados. Usted también aprenderá maneras de cómo estar en más sintonía con su hijo/hija, como ser más cariñoso y responsivo con el/ella, y cómo reducir su estrés como padre.
