Frequently asked questions
What is kids yoga?
Answer: kids yoga is designed specifically for children using the guiding principles of yoga at a level children will understand and enjoy. Classes are non-competitive, safe, and fun so kids can focus on physical fitness, building strength in developing bodies, social skills, and relaxation techniques by encouraging partner and group work as well as breathing, posture, meditation, and fun games. Kids will learn to incorporate the principals of yoga into their lives forever.
