Every Sunday in March we are offering a special Storytime Yoga session provided by Marisa, a certified yoga teacher and DoSeum Volunteer. DoYoga is a program designed to introduce yoga to children and parents who have always wanted to try it, but find yoga confusing, intimidating or too time intensive.
This series is designed for children and parents to experience this introduction to yoga together. Children under 6 may need assistance, so parents are encouraged to sit on the mat with them and provide guidance where necessary.
What children/families will learn:
1. Breathing and visualization techniques to help children focus and center themselves (learn to self-soothe, self-regulate, calm down);
2. Learn yoga poses through storytelling (promotes body awareness, increases strength and flexibility which can lead to decreased injuries and better performance in sports and other physical activities); and
3. Practice Self Reflection & Mindfulness (getting in touch with their feelings and emotions, leading to more empathy and a greater ability to connect with others).
Classes are held from 11:15am-12pm during member morning.
Tips for making your visit as enjoyable as possible:
Ever wonder how stories are created? During The DoSeum’s Authors Series, kids can immerse themselves in the world of storytelling and learn from children’s book authors! They’ll have the opportunity to meet professional writers and illustrators, hear the author’s stories read aloud, and get their own books signed. Participants will experience reading through imaginative activities, inspired by our featured books. After meeting with these Texan authors, they might even be inspired to create stories of their own!
Author Xelena González and illustrator Adriana Garcia teamed up to create All Around Us, a book full of magic, color, beautiful images, and the theme of cycles. Their book received the 2018 Tomás Rivera Mexican American Children’s Book Award.
