Tot Yoga (crawling-24 months) - Sept-Dec 2018 - Wednesdays @ Shenanigans @ Shenanigans Art Space | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Tot Yoga (crawling-24 months) classes are engaging and fun. Class incorporates age-appropriate yoga poses, dance and creative movement, songs, stories, and games as children learn yoga through social interaction, repetition, and play.

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 crawling and walkers.

Public venue classes are limited to 12 families. Please register early. Classes with insufficient enrollment a week in advance of course start may be cancelled.

  • 10 classes, Sept 23-Dec 9 @ Shenanigans Art Space, No class Nov 21.
  • No drop-ins, full series registration required.
    • If students must miss a class, they are welcome to attend any other appropriate class as a makeup within 4 weeks of the original series, or bring a friend to class as a makeup. See makeup class FAQs for details.

  • tot yoga playing with parachuteParents fully participate so should wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to move.
  • No yoga experience required for either parent or child.
  • Yoga mats are not used in this class except during the last few minutes for relaxation. Feel free to bring your own or borrow one of ours.
  • Let go of expectations: We don’t expect full participation by children, and sometimes hardly any on the first day. Some children will be most comfortable observing and some might even wander the room and appear not to be participating. This is all developmentally appropriate and totally fine. Yes, try to engage your child in class, but feel free to simply relax and enjoy your child however they choose to participate.
  • Parents should plan to fully participate in family and early childhood classes. The more yoga you do, the more your child will do (even if not until you get home). One adult must be present, up to two adults are welcome on weekly basis, and the same adult need not be present every time.
  • Please bring only water or milk/formula in closed top containers into the yoga classroom. Breastfeeding is always welcome.
  • Please no photos during class. Not all parents are equally comfortable with having their children photographed and phones are potentially distracting to toddlers who are pretty savvy about what they do. If you would like photos of your little one doing yoga, please take them before or after class or during the last two weeks of the class when the instructor suggests group photos. If one of our instructors takes photos at any time, feel free to request a copy of your child or watch for logo-ed version to turn up on our social media sites so you can re-share.
  • Things to leave at home: Toys, stuffed friends, and even lovies (if at all possible). Very special friends can watch class from the windowsill if necessary, but toys of any kind just cause conflict in class.

Tot Yoga (crawling-24 months) - Sept-Dec 2018 - Wednesdays @ Shenanigans @ Shenanigans Art Space | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Rachel Gooze has been exploring yoga since 1998, mainly learning about physical asana practices and breathing techniques. Over time she deepened her study and this learning process continues to support self-discovery and a desire to share the practices with young children and caregivers. Rachel is deeply grateful to her many teachers (and their lineages of teachers) of yoga asana and philosophy, including Rexx Samuell, Hari-Kirtana Das, Pleasance Silicki, Jennifer Mueller, and Nisha Ahuja. Rachel completed a 200-hour vinyasa yoga teacher training in 2013, and is also a certified ChildLight Yoga Baby & Toddler instructor. During pregnancy, Rachel continued her regular yoga and mindfulness practice and, after her daughter was born in 2016, breathing and moving with the baby became a daily source of joy and discovery. This, in combination with her work as a public health researcher studying the well-being of early childhood educators, motivates her to bring wellness practices to caregivers (parents and teachers), babies, and children.
