Yoga for Families & Children
Yoga helps children and adults learn techniques for concentrating, reducing stress, and connecting to their bodies in a loving way while building fitness and having fun.
Breathing Space classes feature a mix age-appropriate yoga poses, breathing exercises, focus and mindfulness techniques, games, songs, stories, and relaxation. Classes for younger children feature fun props and imaginative play, while classes for older children may incorporate journaling or art. Classes often revolve around a philosophical or natural theme and always include some form of quiet relaxation.
Through yoga, babies, toddlers, and preschoolers explore movement development milestones, gain confidence, support social emotional skills, connect with parents and caregivers, and set the foundation for healthy body attitudes and a fit lifestyle. Older children and teens continue to explore postures and mindfulness techniques along with more yoga philosophy and self awareness/regulation techniques.
Registration: Our classes are offered in multi-week series; registration is required. We typically run 4 semesters per year starting in September, January, March, and May. Workshops and single date classes noted as such. Each registration in family classes includes one child in the indicated age range plus a caregiver. Siblings, twins, and nanny shares are welcome. The same caregiver need not attend weekly. Occasional caregiver guests (grandparents, second parent, etc) are welcome.
Cost: Pricing is based on $18 per class for length of the session. Registration pricing automatically prorates during checkout through the half way point as long as there is space for additional students in class. Sibling discounts are automatic. Read about nanny share discounts here.
