Fun and easy yoga for kids

Little people. Big benefits.

DISCOVER HOW YOGA CAN HELP YOUR CHILD TO REACH THEIR POTENTIAL.

 

A healthy kid is a happy kid!

In Aline Yoga classes, children use their imagination and yoga postures to grow in new ways. They develop motor and movement skills, and understand balance and relaxation through meditation and breath. Most of all, they discover self-confidence and have fun while doing it.

PRIMARY SCHOOL

Yoga helps children to develop flexibility and strength not only physically, but in all aspects of their lives. Yoga classes for children level K-5 to grade 6 are most beneficial when kept to a regular schedule. Our packages are flexible and easily adapt to your curriculum.

HIGH SCHOOL

Teenagers today are faced with many challenges. So few are equipped to deal with their increasing stress levels. Aline Yoga classes are designed to help adolescents recognize their full potential, learn techniques to manage stress and apply what they learn on the mat to everyday life.

DAY CAMP

Yoga is a fun and healthy activity to add to your camp’s schedule. Children of all ages learn breathing and relaxation techniques through playful movements and music. Everyone can enjoy the benefits of yoga at their own rhythm or just wiggle their sillies out!

primary school

In our classes, children are animated and free-spirited as they make noises, act out stories, and pretend to be animals. By using nature and animal themed games, dance and song to stimulate the mind, the creative spirit and enhance health, children expand, explore and express their unique physical, emotional, mental and spiritual gifts. The children use their imagination and yoga postures to learn new vocabulary, develop motor and movement skills, and understand balance and relaxation through meditation and breath.

A portion of the class is devoted to discussing virtues, such as respect, friendliness, patience, compassion or practicing positive affirmations, changing negative thoughts into positive ones.

Length of classes are minimum one hour at a time, adapted to each level of learning. Generally, classes include a 45 minute yoga session, combined with other activities to suit each age group including affirmations and dialogue.

high school

Learning the basics of yoga, such as how to use the breath, helps teens stay calm in stressful or difficult situations. Techniques learned in yoga can prepare students prior to a test, a game, or a presentation. Yoga also helps teenagers feel more centered, aware, and relaxed. Teens today are under a lot of stress. Homework, pressure to compete, endless activities, busy parents, competitive sports – it all adds up.

Classes include discussions around virtues such as kindness and compassion. We explore topics such as trust, confidence, self-discipline and joyfulness that allow participants to make healthier and happier choices in their life.

Length of classes are minimum one hour at a time, adapted to each group’s needs. Generally, classes include a 45 minute yoga session, combined with other activities including meditation and self-esteem tools.

about aline

A chronic sore back lead me to medicine and science to find answers for my pain. Although some things worked for a while, the pain would eventually slip back into my life. Just as I was getting to the point of accepting this way of life, I discovered a gift: Yoga. Regular Yoga practice rescued me from my long-standing discomfort.

Thanks to the wonderful method of Hatha Yoga, not only did I gain physical strength, toned and elongated my muscles, I have also gained emotional strength. Through breathing and the postures, Yoga has helped me cope with stress, remain calm, and give me the ability to pull through hectic days without becoming overwhelmed.

With my renewed energy for life, my passion for Yoga grew and led me to become a Certified Yoga Instructor at Yoga Bliss Studio, in Montreal, guided by my mentor Dr. Madan Bali.

Teaching has been incredibly rewarding. I’m proud to empower my students and share the experience of Yoga to improve the lives  of others on a physical, mental and spiritual level. Join me and make Yoga a regular part of your life today – it will be life changing.

As a certified instructor from the Yoga Bliss Studio, Aline follows the Dr. Bali Method, which is based on the principle that the wisdom of the body is so well designed and equipped that it is self sufficient. It contains a complete pharmacy of its own. The body has the finest technology within and yoga provides a method to tap into its full potential for healing and wellness.

Dr. Bali has developed a unique method that combines yoga, asanas, pranayama, bandhas, kriyas and meditation to tap into the finest technology within. Getting in touch with the body’s own self-referral feedback can help to reverse the damage caused by stress, unhealthy habits, poor diet and negative emotions.

This method helps spread joy, peace and bliss all while providing the physical of the benefits of yoga.

testimonials

Thank you for guiding us through relaxation and meditation techniques. I always feel wonderfully relaxed and calm after our weekly sessions. Your gentle voice and kind nature bring a sense of serenity to every session. May life be good to you.

Gratefully,

Ann Ridyard

I am an educator at the Learning Tree daycare in Dollard-des-Ormeaux and I have had the opportunity to watch our yoga teacher, Aline, work with children of varying ages. What I find most impressive about her approach is that it incorporates movement, song and educational elements so well. She keenly understands the developmental stages of the individual groups she is teaching and adapts her yoga program accordingly. She fully engages the children and makes each session tremendously fun. I would highly resommend her to anyone seeking a preschool yoga instructor.

How happy we were to find Aline Reizian! I teach at Peter Hall School, where we were looking for a volunteer Yoga instructor for some of our special students. Aline has done wonderful things in such a short time. The students really like her. I have also taken the great Yoga sessions Aline is offering after school for our staff.

Many thanks,

Ian Segal

In the spring of this year, I underwent an emotional turmoil following the unexpected death of my dear husband. I felt completely numb, disconnected, in a fog, going through, the daily routine “robotically”. I was sick at heart.

A friend suggested I register for a yoga/stretch class which I did. Following 12 classes with Aline I can say I am feeling more focused, more energized and when I am having a bad day I revert to the breathing and positions which calm me. I also utilize my time behind the wheel with the breathing exercises.

Yoga for me is definetely The Way to Serenity.

Congratulations to Aline Reizian

Thanks for your positive words! My yoga breathing got me through a long labour and delivery I also kept reaffirming positive affirmations like in class.I look forward to starting yoga again but according to my doctor my original 2 wk timeframe is too ambitious. Thanks for the classes they are inspirational.

I had severe lower back pain during and after my pregnancy. I find AlineYoga is helping me deal with a lot of the pain and just deal with my daily life in general. I am much more flexible than I was just a month ago, I feel stronger and am actually excited to learn more and try to do more postures. Aline really goes at your own pace, she is very supportive and encouraging.

Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one's attention to experiences occurring in the present moment,which can be developed through the practice of meditation and other training.

Children have their days. Sometimes, they enjoy sitting for meditation and other days they may want to use their creativity to explore the different ways of calming down. I use props or activities such as the Starfish Breath. Try this at home with your kids and let me know how it goes 😊😊 Namaste

Starfish Breath
This first exercise is sometimes called “5-Finger Breathing”. As you breathe in and out, trace around your fingers. On the in-breath, trace up the outside of your left pinky finger with your right index finger. On the out-breath, trace down the other side. Repeat for the next four fingers. If your child is older or particularly enjoys this exercise, do all ten fingers. Notice how you feel afterwards.
