The YPS Mission

Our program provides a safe space for students to explore, grow & play all while developing tools to be the Peacemakers we need in our great big world. Our belief of quality over quantity is reflected in our class size, as they are small to give individualized attention to each student. The goal of our program is to implement healthy, holistic habits, tapping into the children’s inherent curiosity and receptivity. Together, we will create a safe and comfortable space filled with hours of pure peaceful fun!

Peaceful Approach To Learning (PAL) Curriculum

The Peaceful Approach to Learning™ focuses on social & emotional development and mindful exploratory play from a peaceful place within. We create a calm, tranquil, yet engaging environment to help facilitate the children's discovery of peace within themselves. Peace within begins with how we see ourselves and how we handle our emotions. Discovering ourselves lets us understand how we want to communicate with others. We mindfully communicate with all of our senses: mindfully see, mindfully listen, mindfully touch, mindfully speak, and mindfully taste (eat). Mindfully experiencing our environment is key to developing a peaceful mindset.

Cultural And Environmental Awareness

Cultural awareness is a large component of our PAL™ curriculum as we take “journeys” around the world and learn about other countries in our yoga class. This helps our little yogis understand there’s a big world beyond our community and with awareness, we can build tolerance, acceptance and love for all. We also bring awareness to our environment by recycling, reusing, reducing and composting. At YPS, Earth Day is every day.

Mindful Minis

  • Strong walkers to 2 years
  • Ratio 1 : 5–10

The Mindful Minis are our youngest yogis who have entered the toddler stage where we begin to see their fun-loving personalities come through. They are filled with curiosity and sensory seeking, and excited to soak it all in. In this group, we begin to encourage sharing and learning to play safely with friends. Their yoga class is an introduction to body awareness, spatial awareness, and breathwork as they sing and move through yoga poses all while taking mindful breaths. Our Peacekeepers spend time helping each yogi co-regulate before they can self-regulate and guiding them as they develop an awareness of their emotions.

Little Lotuses

  • Ages 2 & 3
  • Ratio 1 : 6-12

The Little Lotuses are blossoming into independent, energetic and creative little beings. Their minds are full of new ideas and they are beginning to seek more connection with their peers. We encourage and facilitate this through group play, partner activities in yoga & dramatic play, and outdoor free play. Their yoga class consists of an adventure of the week along with a pose of the week, weekly affirmations, breathwork, meditation, and storytime. We create a safe environment for them to express individual feelings through social & emotional exploration and our Peacekeepers offer tools to help them set individual boundaries in a kind and respectful way.

Peacemakers

  • Ages 3-5
  • Ratio 1 : 6-12

The Peacemakers are thriving through imagination and creative play and are excited to learn about the world beyond themselves. They dive deeper into their yoga practice with the addition of mudras and Sanskrit while also learning about other cultures around the world with journeys to a new country each week. With this knowledge, these yogis begin to connect and feel a sense of belonging with our brothers and sisters all over the world. During social & emotional exploration we allow space for students to share their emotions in a safe & welcoming environment. Equipped with self-love and inner peace, these yogis will be ready to change the world to a more peaceful place for all to live in.
