We Rise By Uplifting Others. ~Robert Ingersol
Mindful Child Aerial Yoga is one of only a handful of aerial yoga studios in the world that incorporate mindfulness, therapeutic tools, and sensory integration strategies into their aerial yoga instruction.
Our unique classes use yoga poses and strategies that science demonstrates as therapeutic to the brain and body. We also make sure our classes are filled with social emotional learning and FUN!
Below are just a few of ways we uplift children and soar above others.
HIGHLY QUALIFIED STAFF
Mindful Child Aerial Yoga staff has the credentials to teach children, not only yoga, but social and emotional skills. When you send your child to school or the doctor’s office, you rest assured knowing that your child’s teacher and doctor have degrees in teaching and medicine. They have the adequate credentials to teach your child. In the yoga business, this is not always the case as there is no governing board. Scary, right?
At Mindful Child Aerial Yoga our staff (except for Kennedy who is pre-med at KU and Suzanne who is an occupational therapy graduate student at Rockhurst), not only have degrees, but are licensed professionals working with children. Dr. Tracy is a former psychologist, who has worked with children for over 20-years. Sarah and Abby are early childhood special education teacher. All have spent years in school earning their graduate degrees. Additionally, the staff at Mindful Child Aerial Yoga have all attended Dr. Tracy’s rigorous yoga training programs.
Before opening Mindful Child Aerial Yoga a structural engineer inspected and reinforced our ceiling. We also spent more money on our aerial yoga hammocks. We only buy safety test aerial yoga hammocks and equipment. These hammocks have been safety tested up to 1300 pounds! Lastly, we have special yoga flooring called Zebra Yoga Flooring that is padded. If your child falls out of the hammock it doesn’t hurt. We spared no expense to make sure your child is safe.
Our aerial yoga program is brain-based, therapeutic, and research-backed. Everything from the music we play to the yoga movements we introduce are beneficial to brain development with proven therapeutic results. Go us for making aerial yoga not only fun, but brain building!
Mindfulness is incorporated into all aspects of our program. The Mindful Child Aerial Yoga curriculum teaches children how to build mindful awareness, which helps them reflect before they react. Problem behaviors decrease while executive functioning, and adaptive skills are enhanced.
Mindful Child Yoga Teacher Training is a registered yoga school. Our 95-hour children’s yoga teacher training is approved and registered with Yoga Alliance. It is the only approved 95-hour yoga teacher training in the Midwest. We are also a continuing education provider for yoga instructors. This means we know a lot about yoga!
SPECIALIZE IN CHILDREN
We only teach children. Unlike other yoga studios we focus ALL of our attention on making our yoga program unique and beneficial to children. Since that is all we do, we are really good at it!
When looking for aerial yoga for your child don’t be afraid to ask questions. Make sure the teacher is a licensed professional who works with children. Also, ask about the safety of the equipment. Has it been safety tested? Were the hammocks hung by a licensed contractor? Is there a padded flooring? After all your child will be suspended in the air hanging upside down like a monkey…
