Yoga for Families & Children

What is a Kids or Family Yoga Class Like?

While many of the poses will look familiar to adult yogis, a kids class is structured very differently than an adult hatha yoga class. We incorporate songs and games. There’s much more emphasis on social interaction and classes incorporate many props never found in an adult class: hula hoops, balloons, scarfs, crayons, and more. Classes often revolve around a theme and many classes incorporate story telling or books. Possibilities include the following themes:

  • philosophical – kindness, honesty, courage, respect, discipline, generosity;
  • natural – change of seasons, growth & change, elements: water, earth, wind fire;
  • tween camp 1life events and places – holidays, travel, a visit to the zoo, jungle safari, desert adventure.

Current and Upcoming Sessions

Our kids and family classes run in multi-week sessions, meaning students sign up consecutive weeks of classes. No drop-ins for children’s (toddler and older) or family classes. This commitment allows students to learn poses and build skills from week to week and helps create a safe environment for exploration and learning. Read more.

If students miss a class, they are welcome to do makeups in any other appropriate class on our schedule. Alternatively, family members are welcome to take a makeup class in any appropriate series. See attendance and makeup policies.
