Welcome to Afro Yogi Kids
We can't afford to be lazy when bringing up the African American child, Society places too many odds against them.
Don’t you wish you knew how powerful your mind was at an early age? Our minds literally control ALL of our actions and emotions. Black kids will be faced with plenty of hardships on their journeys throughout life. If we do not teach our children to control their emotions and believe in themselves, it can be detrimental to their futures.
Afro Yogi Kids was created to build overall confidence in the Black child; as they deal with situations that involve physical appearance, education, sporting purposes, anxiety, depression and much more. These situations can cause a child to feel the need for sense of relief and help with coping and we are here to guide them. Along with past and possible future tough life events, yoga and meditation are extremely important in helping with the state of our children’s mental health. Here at Afro Yogi Kids we strive to create a can do attitude for our kids; because once they can be at peace with themselves instead of letting negative thoughts consume them, we will have a wealth of healthier kids that grow into healthy adults in our communities.
Yoga, Meditation and mindfulness can be extremely beneficial to kids on its own, but we like to add our own spin on our classes by incorporating games and creativity from time to time. Our classes are for kids ages 6-15, you and your kids will love our family structure as we begin on a journey that will create great memories as well as give every child an opportunity to learn the skills of mind and body control. A completely priceless teaching that your child will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
"If they can control their minds they can control their futures"

What are the benefits of BEcoming an Afro Yogi Kid?
What We Offer
We are family and we definitely conduct our class as a unit. Expressing the importance of community.
Our yoga, dance, and games will help to keep our Afro Yogis heart rate up and healthy. We mix a bit of action into our relaxation sessions.
If you’re thinking adult yoga for Kid’s, you’ve got it wrong. It’s a kid’s yoga class, we have to get creative and structure our classes to keep our yogis entertained (most of the class).
Don’t take for granted the stresses our kids deal with daily. Lets teach them how to let go and move forward with their goals. Holding on to stress is a threat to our health. We teach breathing techniques and relaxation tips, we also discuss the importnce of relaxation.
Meditation is the key. We teach our Afro Yogis how to stay on track and complete their goals and desires. Kids are naturally curious, we forgive them, but we plant the seed of the importance of focus now and watch the lesson bloom.
This is one of our BIGGEST goals! We want all of our kids to understand the importance confidence. Being comfortable in their skin, no matter what society may throw their way. Confidence can get you far, while a lack of it can certainly hold you back.
