Family Yoga & Mindfulness (Adult with child aged 2-5 years)

In Leslie’s yoga classes, students become familiar with their breath and feelings. They primarily focus on breath awareness within yoga poses, games, and experimental movement. Students investigate how their bodies move during postures, balancing, and coordinated group poses. Students will also begin to strengthen their mind-body connection through their physical practice, attention to breath, and restorative exercises. Leslie’s goal is that every yogi steps away from their mat stronger and happier.

During the family class, young yogis and their grown-up will work through a variety of pose sequences, breathwork exercises, and cooperative activities. Leslie plans each class with the specific student group in mind and will adjust the curriculum as needed.

Krav Maga* with Gil Woodbridge (Ages 16+)

Krav Maga is a military self-defense and fighting system developed for the Israeli army; it incorporates techniques from Boxing, Wrestling, Aikido, Judo, Karate, and more. And at the JCC, it incorporates FUN!

Led by Krav Maga expert and experienced educator, Gil Woodbridge, our IKM Krav Maga program advances its self-defense martial arts content from the Wingate Sports College in Israel, which sees sports as being not only a field of competition and individual fulfillment, but also as an educational tool.

The secret to our popularity lies not only in the type of techniques that are taught, but also in the full range of movement that is encouraged. In our new method there is no “wrong way to move,” which provides a “carefree” environment for the child to be fully expressive. Classes are built in a fun and interactive way that keeps your child engaged throughout the duration of the session.

 

Schedule TBD.

IKM uniform fee payable to instructor at first class

*All participants must wear a mouth guard; guidelines to be provided upon enrollment.
