Parents and children playfully move together through poses, songs, and activities appropriate for crawlers and earlier walkers.

Parent testimonial:

“[Yoga] class is without question a highlight of our week.  There are few things that could pull us so easily from a cozy bed on Saturday morning!  Our daughter was seven months when we started, and she has only grown more and more interested and engaged each week.  Jen creates a warm environment for babies to play and learn, consistently introducing new concepts, exercises and experiences that make every session different.  She also welcomes both parents to participate, and it has become a wonderful way for us to start our weekend together as a family.”
