    Class Description
  • Yoga Exploration’s Florrie Flamingo’s Yoga Adventures Class is a play-based approach to kids yoga following along on the silly adventures of Florrie Flamingo©. Florrie Flamingo© is a hand illustrated Flittering Flamingo Character dancing among a background of bright and brilliant colors. She was created to help children learn their ballet terminology when she was first introduced as a loving and recognizable character for the Dance Exploration Florrie Flamingo© Ballet Classes. Florrie Flamingo’s Yoga Adventures follows the ‘Dance to Learn!’® Curriculum and is designed to teach the whole child through the 5 Methods of Performance Arts™ which have been formed based on the stages of childhood development. Florrie Flamingo’s Yoga Adventures classes follow a progressive class structure with simple breathing exercises, stretches and yoga poses all explored through a Florrie Flamingo story. Students will be encounter other familiar friends from their ballet classes such as Swanhilda Swan, Oscar the Ostrich and Bella Bear as well as be introduced to new characters!. The yoga stretches and poses are taught using creative and imaginative play through stories that are silly, fun and adventurous as part of the ‘Dance to Discover!’™ Method. This keeps class exciting and makes the exercises more fun. Props such as Teddy Bears, Magic Wands, Hula Hoops and Scarves may be used to make to enhance sensory development. The focus on stretching, flexibility, strength, coordination and proper execution of poses is part of the ‘Dance to Move!’™ method. Partner yoga and stretches are incorporated time to time as part of the ‘Dance to Accept!’™ method where children learn to accept each other’s unique talents through dance and movement activities. Children’s artistic freedom and self expression are encouraged by their teachers by creating a positive “Yes” environment! Students are asked from time to time to create their own adventure within Florrie Flamingo’s Yoga Story of the week. Challenging student’s creative development and thinking is included as the ‘Dance to Create!’™ Method of class as well as the ‘Dance to Express!’™ Method.
