Classes and Workshops

Parent Yoga

Yoga for you while your children play or join in - babies & kids of all ages welcome!

A relaxing, casual environment to relax, stretch and develop strength without having to find childcare! Children of all ages are welcome. Babies may nap, watch you, crawl on you or be lifted during your warrior poses and older kids may do the poses with us! Half of the room is a preschool that the children are welcome to use as they may wander in and out of our yoga practice. You may even step in and out of the practice depending on their needs or find creative ways to nurse during the poses! The intention is to offer a space for you to connect with other parents and find a little relaxation, flexibility and strength while doing it. A chance to check in on how you feel and how parenting feels with a supportive environment. And your kids get a group of friends to play with. An added bonus is that young children learn the "feel" of us practicing awareness and mindfulness during our yoga - they absorb this nicely just by being there.

Parenting is hard work. How do we nourish ourselves as parents and caregivers? This four part series weaves the potent practice of Kundalini Yoga and meditation with brain science to help us slow down & de-stress in the moment. Kundalini yoga is a dynamic practice blending movement, breath, mantra, relaxation, and meditation to tune up the nervous system, create mobility in the spine, and connect to inner truth.

The course will include reflection, movement, and mini-mindfulness techniques that enable us to move through the tough times with grace. Parents may bring children to play during the course. Peaceful Heart Preschool welcomes families to warm up with a cup of tea after the session for connection, discussion, and play.

Amanda Johansson is mama to a rambunctious and sweet toddler and a head-strong and magical preschooler. Amandaearned a MS in Leadership for Sustainability Education from Portland State University, holds a Permaculture Design Certificate, and has taught Kundalini Yoga since 2014. Through her work at The Moon and Me, Amanda facilitates hands-on experiences to connect us to ourselves, our community, and the Earth. Visit themoonandme.org to learn more!

Kids Yoga

Movement, breathing, mindfulness and emotional awareness in a weekly class

We will move our bodies, gaining flexibility, strength, balance, confidence and more body awareness. We will practice many types of breaths and relax our bodies and minds to learn we are the creators of our reality. We will discuss, play with and imagine the four big feelings teaching emotional awareness and empowerment. We will hear stories and do some art and spend some time playing as well!

Family Yoga Class Series

Yoga and mindfulness for the whole family!

We will explore Yoga, Mindfulness and Emotional Awareness through many different avenues: Yoga postures to increase body awareness, confidence, flexibility, strength, focus and coordination; Stories to open and expand the mind to new ways of thinking and acting; Meditation practice for tools to focus and calm the mind, to become aware of feelings and energy in the body and change them when necessary; Games and Role Playing as fun ways to explore and practice; and Music and Art to engage the creativity of it all. Partner poses and learning some skills together can help bring families closer!

Parents get to dip into a sweet relaxing savasana while the kids read a story and do an art project. Take home several types of breaths that can relax, focus or energize. We will use games and stories that can be used on their own at home or tied into your established daily routines. Parenting is its own yogic path!! Join us as we share and discover helpful tips and self care concepts. Instead of yet another activity to fit into your busy schedules, imagine yoga and mindfulness workshops as an opportunity to incorporate simplifying, grounding and relaxing approaches into the busy life you may already lead!
