20 Year Certified Yoga Teacher helps youth become strong, develop concentration, and a positive self image.

Children from the ages of 5 to 13 who are interested in Yoga have a place to practice Yoga for free. Nanda Bondade, a certified yoga teacher for 20 years teaches two classes every Sunday at The Durga Temple in Fairfax Station. According to Bondade, Yoga is beneficial not just for adults, it will help anyone who regularly practices it. 

“Kids who practice Yoga become strong and flexible,” says Nanda Bondade. “They develop a sense of balance and concentration and are instilled with courage, confidence and positive self image.”

Some of the activities the children will engage in include Yogasanas, chanting, meditation, games and story telling. The asanas will be age appropriate and progressively challenging.

The yoga class is divided into two classes. 9 – 13 year olds practice from 8:30 a.m. to 9:25 a.m. on Sunday mornings while those between 5 to 9 years of age attend class between 9:30 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. All classes are held at 8400 Durga Place, Fairfax Station, Va.
