Yoga for Kids and Teens

Tween girl in wheel pose, kids yogaResearch in yoga in both studio and school settings is beginning to show measurable benefits for kids. “Children who practice yoga may not only be better able to regulate their emotions, manage stress and calm themselves, studies now show that they may also choose better foods to eat and engage in more physical activity than children who do not,” writes Mira Binzen in her article Yoga for Children–Now Proven Effective!

Yoga Classes for Children

A kids yoga class encourages children to move creatively in a non-competitive environment while honoring each child’s unique expression of the poses.

Young boy in tree pose, kids yogaBreathing Space classes incorporate age-appropriate poses, breathing, movement, games, music, and art. Classes often revolve around a philosophical or natural theme and always include some form of quiet relaxation.

Kids Yoga (4-10 yrs) helps children learn techniques for concentrating, reducing stress, and connecting to their bodies in a loving way while having fun. Individual classes may be for more specific age ranges, so see descriptions for details.

Tween Yoga (Ages 9-12)  or Preteen/Teen Yoga (Ages 12-16) provides older children and teens with a safe space to explore more complex poses and asana than in classes for younger children as well breathing exercises, movement games, and much-needed relaxation techniques.

Family Yoga is structured like a kids class with more of an emphasis on partner poses that parents and children can do together. All our Early Childhood Yoga (0-4 yrs) classes are family classes. We also offer weekly classes and workshops for families with older children.
