One aspect of our studio that makes us so unique is our family yoga programs. Our studio has yoga classes for all developmental ages including infants all the way up to teens. Yoga has physical and mental benefits for kids of all ages. All of our yoga classes are developmentally appropriate, and taught by teachers certified in kids yoga, in addition to years of experience teaching kids in multiple settings including preschools, homeschools, physical activity courses, and/or child psychological and behavioral experience. Some of our classes are interactive with parents, while others allow the children to create, explore, and build independence on their own. While most of our kids classes are 6 week series, we also have special events and some permanent homeschool group kids classes on the schedule. Please join our mailing list and follow us on social media to stay up to date of all the upcoming series offerings!
