Early Childhood Yoga Class Descriptions
Tot Yoga (crawling-24 months) classes are engaging and fun. We encourage each child to embrace their own unique expression of yoga poses while supporting their development and growth. Parents and children playfully move together through poses, songs, and activities appropriate for crawlers and earlier walkers.
“[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.”
Yoga can help preschoolers (21 months-4 years) learn how to relieve frustration, improve motor skills, and increase attention span by actively following directions.
Classes encourage social interaction, repetition, and play. We incorporate imagination, songs, words and stories and age-appropriate postures and activities to support your preschooler’s growth and development while creating an enriching parent/child activity.
Younger siblings are always welcome in preschooler yoga. Siblings older than 1 year can register at half price; no charge for non-walking infants.
