Children’s Classes

PLEASE NOTE: ALL CLASSES ARE HELD ONLINE USING ZOOM

Fall Session #2 runs for 9 weeks between Oct 19 – Dec. 20 (no classes Wed, Nov. 26 or Thurs, Nov. 27) and is open for registration.

We strongly encourage you to register for the entire 8-week session of the class(es) of your choice, if your budget will allow. We will need to have a minimum number of students enrolled in any particular class in order for it to continue. All classes will meet the first week of the session, and drop-ins will be allowed. Thereafter, we will continue to accept drop-ins only after minimum enrollment is met. If minimum enrollment has not been met before the second class, the class will be removed from the schedule.

Enrolled students will be notified if their class has to be cancelled and may choose another class or a refund/store credit. Make-ups may be taken during the 8-week session but may not be carried over to the next session.

Parent/Child Yoga (6 mos.-3 years)

Share the joy of yoga with your little one. Yes, yoga! Yoga programs for young children encourage children to be children. Imitation of animals, nature, and everyday objects comes naturally to them. Children love opportunities to use their imaginations to create and explore. Through the use of movement, rhymes, songs, and imaginative storytelling, yoga encourages their natural abilities and interests while also helping them to develop strength, flexibility, and an overall sense of well-being.
