What is talk yoga?
Talk yoga is the combination of speech and language principles with the benefits of yoga poses, breathing, sensory integration and mindfulness strategies. Children learn to express themselves in an inclusive environment where they are free to explore, express, play and learn. Each enriching class helps the development of speech sounds and language using Talk Yoga™ Articulation Poses, flows, tune-ins, and games.
Who does talk yoga benefit?
All children ages 3-5 can greatly benefit. Children at this age are working on their letter sounds and language development. Repetition and movement help kids make a deeper learning connection. Self-regulating techniques such as breathing, guided relaxation and meditation help kids get to know their body and helps increase self awareness.
Jen’s journey with speech and language began as a parent of a child with Apraxia of Speech. Working with her then-preschooler daily, she learned the fundamentals of language and articulation and saw the benefits of pairing speech and movement. When Jen discovered Talk Yoga she knew it would be perfect for her and her daughter and became a certified instructor in 2022. Jen has been a student of yoga for the past 20 years and is currently enrolled in her 200-hour teacher training. When not practicing yoga, Jen works as a graphic designer and art director. She loves creating and inspiring clients to reach their full potential. Outside of the yoga and design studio, she enjoys hiking, paddleboarding, reading, and spending time with family.
