Have you noticed that kids are natural yogis?
They live in the moment, they possess innate flexibility and unlimited potential for growth.
Balanced lives begin with balanced children. And here’s your chance to practice yoga with your little loved one.
Classes encourage your child to use their whole bodies, minds and senses as we engage and educate their entire beings.
Kids use their natural energy and enthusiasm to play, sing and imagine as they explore mindfulness, body awareness, health and Mother Earth.
Classes are for parents and their children ages 2-5. Interested children outside of this range are welcome too.
This interdisciplinary approach based on Next Generation Yoga, integrates the fundamentals of child development, traditional yoga ideals, creativity and fun. Playful yoga poses, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques are sprinkled with music, art, books, and educational and sensory elements to create a unique learning experience!
Most importantly, we share the greatest lessons of life from the start: how to understand, express and love oneself, inside and out.
Through yoga, we can positively affect the health, well being and confidence of the next generation.
