Perfect for all levels of experience. (this class is often paired at the same time as a Kids Yoga class so your kiddos can practice in the room next door while you get your yoga on!).
KID & FAMILY CLASSES
In order to create a safe space and a feeling of comfort for your little ones we ask that you come to the studio ten minutes prior to class to get your child settled in to their studio room. Sometimes it’s better for young children to have their caregivers physically pass them off to another adult so that they clearly know that their caregiver is choosing to place their trust in another person. This allows your child to trust the new caregiver more readily. This might look like physically handing your child to the teacher after a goodbye routine (i.e. one hug and two kisses) or bringing your child’s hand to hold the teachers. Teachers will be ready to help adults and children through these possibly challenging moments. Let us know if you have any questions. Please note that caregivers are not allowed in kids only classes (listed by age) yet caregivers must attend the adult yoga class offered at the same time for their children in classes for ages 5 and under
Baby Yoga (non-mobile babies)
