EAGLE RIVER - Yoga typically means twisting and bending your body in all types of positions. But for Katie Hawke, she teaches a simpler kind of yoga - one for kids.
"Yoga is the glue that glues together your thoughts, your body and your breathing," said Hawke.
She is a teacher at MHLT in Minocqua and even uses it in her classroom.
"I've seen remarkable results," said Hawke.
Youth yoga essentially teaches children the same things it teaches adults.
"It helps teach them breathing techniques and self-calming techniques," said Hawke.
And of course with kids, they do and say the darnedest things.
"A lot of them, they like to make up their own yoga poses," said Hawke.
But Hawke mainly wants to get kids up and moving, and teach them that yoga has no boundaries.
"Yoga is something that is for every body and every age," said Hawke.
All donations from the yoga classes went to The Warehouse Art Center in Eagle River.
