In Keiki and Me Yoga, moms and dads interact with their little ones while doing yoga for both parent and baby. This includes learning and singing yoga songs for babies, practicing different yoga breathing techniques and doing yoga poses!
Participants will need to bring a yoga mat and water bottle, and feel free to bring toys for the kids too in case they need a break from doing yoga.

In the past three months, YMCA Kaimuki Yoga workshops have focused on the many ways a yoga practice can help balance our minds, bodies and beings as well as offer various adaptations of poses for pain-free range of motion, help us manage pain and perhaps even become more pain tolerant.
In fact, research indicates that incorporating a regular meditation practice using Yoga Nidra (Yoga Sleep) as well as mindful breathing practices can change the part of our brain that responds to pain by making it more pain tolerant. Movement also can be done in ways that allow us more pain free moments during our day while maintaining body integrity and internal strength. Much of what yoga teaches from the start emphasizes connecting with ourselves at many levels so that we stay in touch with our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves. With this type of connection, we discover and honor our personal boundaries, we can move in healthy and integral ways and we learn to listen to our bodies. From the start, we connect simply by taking the time to breathe with more intention and awareness.
Sharing our live recording of our Yoga for Pain Management seminar with Yoga Therapist, Lindsey Sutton.
The first part (LECTURE) is informational about yoga and its multi-dimensional approach to pain. The second part (MEDITATION) is a short centering and breathing practice that you can try as part of your routine.
Please pardon the quality of the videos as the live recording depends on internet quality. We hope they're helpful to you!

Our Club Mid kids are working on a small garden at the back of the basketball court? Hoping to make it fruitful with Hawaiian goodies! They are led by Kai Uyehara.
"I personally love plants and thought it would be good for the kids to experience the same feeling I have when I work with plants and just disconnecting for a bit. I don't guarantee everyone is gonna enjoy it but I share that whenever I work or do anything in nature that there is a visceral feeling I feel that is very therapeutic and I hope everyone can experience it."
