Flower yoga was founded by Tara Rachel Jones, M.Ed., and is managed together by her husband Aaron Jones and in wonder with their daughter Jade Rose. While their main practice is founded in yoga, they strive to celebrate the joys and traditions of all the world's people. Tara brings her nearly three decades of experience, Aaron brings his art, poetry, and music, while Jade Rose brings her indomitable spirit to all their celebrations. Transporting time honored, sacred traditions of the spirit of mankind in a playful, joyous environment is what they exist to do.
The Flower Yoga Mission is to bring children and families into the present moment, which is where the consciousness of a young mind resides. How do we achieve this? Through the ageless magic of storytelling, song and verse. Flower Yoga teachings are dedicated to meeting toddlers, children, youth, teens and families with these timeless gifts that enhance connection and communication. Yoga is a vehicle by which we all can find Unity in Diversity. Stories weave a melodious tapestry of inner character building, messages of awareness towards others, the self and the planet. Singing infuses the heart with joy and the body with breath. Rhythmical Language brings beauty in speech and diction for kind words and truth to emerge. Each Flower Yoga class is enveloped in a developmentally engaging structure that creates space for a deliberate and positive PAUSE from a very busy world.
