Learn French harmoniously!

Learning by doing, especially by moving, anchors new language acquisition. By practicing yoga in French, learners will link language to physical actions designed to reinforce comprehension of specific vocabulary and grammar. These will include key nouns (parts of the body, animals, birds, seasons, emotions), verbs, prepositions, adverbs and adjectives for moving into and out of postures. Yoga in French provides the opportunity for children to comprehend and speak French in a non-threatening, relaxed atmosphere that supports mental, emotional and physical health.

No prior French required.

Workshops are led by Sophie Carkeek.
I aim to bring a sense of fun and wonder to each of my classes. Through intention, breath work, postures, group work and relaxation, I work to create a space where each young person can express his or her physicality, build strength and stamina, and develop a sensitivity to the link between breath, movement and emotion. I teach in a way that is light-hearted, playful and gentle. In each class, we develop focus and awareness of our emotions. We also explore relaxation and trusting oneself and others (partner yoga).
