For children walking to 3 years old. Younger pre-walking siblings are welcome to be present during class for no extra charge, but the class is not geared towards them.
Join your toddler as we take a yoga journey they will never forget! Using visual aids, we will stand rooted like trees, bark in downward dog, flutter our wings in butterfly, trumpet water like an elephant, and hop high like a frog! We will play games, listen to music, and practice breathing exercises which they can bring into everyday life. This themed class creates a space for bonding between parent or caregiver and child while strengthening growing muscles, and ends with relaxation. Class is 45 minutes.
For kids 4-8 years old.
This yoga class for kids encourages imagination, self-expression, and building positive peer interactions. Children will learn breathing and relaxation techniques as well as how to play creatively while building balance, concentration, strength, flexibility, and coordination. These physical skills and anatomical self-awareness complement other extracurricular activities such as soccer, hockey, dance and gymnastics. While learning respect for self and others, kids will have fun doing partner and group poses, and lots of yoga games. Each class tells a story and surrounds a theme such as Garden, Beach, Jungle, Dinosaurs, Fire Rescue, Magical Castle, and many more! Singing, drawing and yoga comprise this energy-releasing, 45 minute class.
For kids 9-12 years old
For teens 13 and up.
For up to 2 adult and 2 children, immediate family members only. For additional family members there is an extra charge.
In this fun and interactive yoga class, families will strengthen their bond and create meaningful memories together. In a world where parents and children are so busy, family yoga provides a wonderful place to spend healthy and happy, quality time together. Classes are often themed, and we will explore individual and partner postures as well as games and stories. The family interactions help to build team spirit, confidence and self-esteem, as well as strong, flexible, whole and healthy bodies. Class is 45 minutes.
