The yoga program at Peace Lutheran aims to help children connect body, breathe, heart, and mind. Yoga has been proved to improve both physical and mental health in children.
At Peace, the children’s yoga practice is connected to the weekly Bible story presented in Chapel. Children hear the story in Chapel and then connect the story to healthy body movements in their yoga classes throughout the week.

Above all, Megan hopes that the yoga posture series taught at Peace will knit meaningful Bible stories into the heart of your child as they connect body, mind, spirit, and breath. Our wish is that children can hear these stories, follow along with the movements, and retell the stories themselves.
