Deanna Cramer, MA, MFA teaches Kids Yoga at Iyengar Yoga North County. Deanna is a dynamic teacher with over 15 years in the academic environment and has been practicing Iyengar yoga for nine years. When asked how teaching children differs from working with adults, Cramer replies, “Children love speed and variety. We practice and change from pose to pose more rapidly than with adults. Asana practice needs to be playful and give children challenges for their age.”
The classes are taught following the Yogashastra, a practice guide compiled by teachers of Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute and Light on Yoga Research Trust for teaching beginning asanas and preparatory movements for coordination.
