Hi, I'm Brandi Allen with Shiva's Centre here in Salt lake City, Utah and today, I want to talk to you about some Yoga classes that you can take your children to to learn different types of Yoga. One of the classes we have here at Shiva's Centre is a Kalari Kids Yoga class where they learn the ancient Martial Arts form of Yoga. Another class is a Mommy and Me class where we have two, up to two year olds with their moms come and learn together. And then, another class is a, a children Yoga class where kids from four to twelve year olds come to learn and play together. Now, I'd like to show you some of the postures and activities that you do in some of these Yoga classes for kids. So, this posture that Amelia's going to be demonstrating is one of the postures that they, she would do in a Kalari Yoga class. So, I'm going to have Amelia show us a Horse posture. "So, can you stand up?" And one, the front knee will be bent and arms are shoulder height and the chest lifts and she reaches out through her fingers and the back foot is flat on the floor and it's very strong in the leg and lifting in the heart. "Yes". "Nice". "Okay, and can you show Elephant?" This is, and this pose Amelia will be doing is Elephant posture, another Kalari posture, with wide knees and feet flat on the floor. Thumbs at the third eye, elbows together, lifting up through the chest and straight back; Elephant posture for Kalari. "Nice." "Let's have you do Cat too, just make them pick which one they like." "Can you face the camera when you do this one up?" This posture is Cat in Kalari Yoga; straight arms straight out on the knees with the, the pointer finger and thumb touching. This is a Meditation posture that you would use in Kalari Yoga. And again, I'm Brandi Allen with Shiva's Centre here in Salt Lake City, Utah and we just talked about different Yoga programs that you can do with your child.
