Family Yoga is structured like an age-appropriate kids class with an emphasis on poses and activities for parents and children to do together. While many of the poses will look familiar to adult yogis, 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. bsfy-open-house 709

This workshop is for ages 6 and up. $30 per pair, $10 for additional children.
