Class Descriptions

Prenatal Yoga:  A comprehensive Prenatal Yoga class focused on preparing women physically, mentally and emotionally for the natural process of childbirth and motherhood. This class will increase strength, stamina, flexibility, breath and body awareness, while reducing fatigue and improving relaxation.

Baby and Me: This is an excellent class for mommy’s to bond with their baby while meeting and developing a community with other moms.  Each class is designed to introduce baby to yoga while simultaneously stretching, strengthening, and calming mom’s body.  Yoga poses for baby are designed to improve sleep, digestion and tummy troubles, reduce fussiness, strengthen their immune system, aid in overall development, and improve communication between mom and baby.  Mom’s also have the opportunity to practice yoga poses and breathing exercises designed specifically to aid in post-partum healing.  This is an interactive class where mom’s are welcome to ask questions and share their experiences in a safe, supportive environment.  No yoga experience is required and babies ages 6 weeks to pre-walking are welcome.

Toddler and Me Yoga:  This class provides an excellent space for the entire family to bond and connect while simultaneously stretching, strengthening, and relaxing your body.   Each class will include movement/asana, songs, games, and time to slow down and rest.  By practicing yoga with your toddler(s) you are setting a foundation for and investing in their health and wellness.  Yoga helps build strength, balance, and concentration while simultaneously stimulating their senses, providing social interaction, enhancing their self-esteem, and improving communication and stress management skills.  This class is tailored for crawlers to age four.  Parents/caregivers practice together with their toddler(s).

Kids Yoga:  This class is designed for kids ages 4-10.  Each class will include yoga postures, songs, games, breathing exercises, and space to be quiet, calm, and peaceful.  In addition to building strength, balance, and flexibility, kids will naturally develop more inner body awareness and will enjoy having a space to creatively express themselves through movement, breath, and intention.  Invest in your child’s life by introducing them to the practice of yoga.

Family Yoga: Family yoga provides an excellent space for the entire family to bond and connect while simultaneously stretching, strengthening, and relaxing your body.  Through the practice of yoga, kids will naturally develop more inner body awareness and will enjoy having a space to creatively express themselves through movement, breath, and intention.  Families will leave with tools to continue the yogic journey off of their mats including songs, games, affirmations in motions (sun salutation chants), new poses to practice at home, and resting/savasana exercises.  Share the practice of yoga with your child in a fun, playful space and observe how your entire family grows and evolves.  Parents/caregivers will practice alongside their kids.  No yoga experience is necessary.
