youth yoga

We believe the gift of yoga is an important ingredient for happy and healthy children. Through the use of games, stories, adventures and props, your children will enjoy essential playtime while improving strength, balance, flexibility, focus and much more. Through yoga breathing practices we also help kids learn to cope with their strong emotions, learn patience and self calming techniques. For older kids yoga helps them cope with life's stressors such as homework, tests and changes in daily routines. Teaching our children to manage their stress at an early age can help them navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease.
