Yoga for Families & Children - Breathing Space

Yoga for Families & Children

The mission of Breathing Space is to provide wellness services and education for children and families, offering classes for children and families of all ages in Washington, DC.

Yoga for Kids and Teens 

Yoga helps children learn techniques for concentrating, reducing stress, and connecting to their bodies in a loving way while having fun. Our kids and tween 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.

Family Yoga

Family Yoga is structured like an age-appropriate kids class  with an emphasis on poses and activities for parents and children to do together. Age ranges and sibling policies vary.

Early Childhood Yoga

Yoga helps babies, toddlers, and preschoolers explore movement milestones, gain confidence, build strength and fitness, learn a tool for self-regulation, connect with parents and caregivers, and set the foundation for healthy body attitudes and a fit lifestyle. Breathing Space baby, tot, and preschool classes feature a mix age-appropriate yoga poses, songs, stories and games.

These parent-child classes are engaging and fun, encouraging each child to embrace their own unique expression of yoga poses while supporting their development and growth (Nannies, grandparents, and other caregivers welcome too).

“[Yoga] class is without question a highlight of our week...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.”

– Caroline, Tot Yoga parent

My 14-month-old has been enrolled in the weekly Tot Yoga classes with Breathing Space and we are really enjoying them! She loves getting to see the other fellow tots on the screen, plus the chance to do some weekly yoga play with Mama . . . It's fun to watch my little one glance back and forth from Jen on the screen to Mama in the room, and then either mimic us then and there, or file it away to bust out later on her own time. 
– Tot Yoga virtual class parent

Jen has done an amazing job making yoga fun and accessible to toddlers and preschoolers. She takes the extroverts bouncing off the ceiling and the shy ones under grownups legs and manages to engage them all every class. Each class involves adventures to exciting locations, a menagerie of animal poses and a soothing "yoga rest" with bubbles.
