Yoga for Families & Children

What is a Kids or Family Yoga Class Like?

preschooler family yoga - dad and daughter

While many of the poses will look familiar to adult yogis, a kids class is structured very differently than an adult hatha yoga class. How?

  • We incorporate lots of songs and games.
  • There’s much more emphasis on social interaction.
  • We use many props never found in an adult class: hula hoops, balloons, scarfs, crayons, and more.
  • Many classes incorporate story telling or books.

Class themes vary according to student interests and instructor creativity. 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. This commitment allows students to learn poses and build skills from week to week and helps create a safe environment for exploration and learning. No drop-ins for children’s (toddler and older) or family classes. 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.

Yoga helps children learn techniques for concentrating, reducing stress, and connecting to their bodies in a loving way while having fun. Our kids and tween classes incorporate age-appropriate poses, breathing, movement, games, music, and art.

Tree PoseClasses often revolve around a philosophical or natural theme and always include some form of quiet relaxation.
