Emoji Yogi

Emoji Yogi is a program developed by Danceworks for K5 and 1st grade students. Participants will be guided through movement, breathing exercises, yoga and storytelling by one of our Teaching Artists. They will be engaged with themes such as kindness, happiness and gratitude with age appropriate practices. Each month students will receive one in-person 45 minute class and 2 additional recorded lessons to be used throughout the month as needed by the classroom teacher.

Danceworks is proud to be partnering with the Choose Love Movement for this program. The Choose Love formula of Courage+Love+Forgiveness+Compassion in Action will help form each lesson.
