Yoga for Children (ages 4+)

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.

Class Descriptions

Tween Yoga (Ages 9-12)  provides a non-competitive environment for older children to explore more complex poses and asana than in classes for younger children as well breathing exercises, movement games, mindfulness activities, and much-needed relaxation techniques.

Students learn techniques for concentrating, reducing stress, and connecting to their bodies in a loving way, while still being playful and fun. Classes often revolve around a philosophical theme and may include discussion, journaling, or mindful art.
