Yoba (combination of yoga and ballet) will take K-3 students on a musical yoga journey with a mixture of flexibility and strength activities, movement games, narrative stories, and relaxation exercises. DLL Yoba is helpful for two very different reasons:
- DLL will work with educators to choose specific theme/concepts applicable to current study (I.E: Weather systems, mathematical patterns and multiplication, cave systems, jungle animals.) DLL will then take the topic/concept chosen and build a specific workshop around themed material with narrative stories, yoga and dance techniques, and relaxation exercises.
- DLL understands that the current young student has a lot on their plate. It can sometimes be difficult to manage emotions and expectations while staying focused and productive. DLL equips students with the tools to manage emotions, use productive communication skills, work on a team and affirm themselves and others. These skills can be particularly helpful before or during testing.
