Yoga/Movement For Kids & Parents

ITSY BITSY YOGA FOR TOTS for mobile babies up to 21 months (Celeste LeMieux) Toddlers are natural yogis! In this class, tots and their loving caregiver explore over 75 developmentally nutritious poses, songs, and activities designed by baby-yoga expert and author Helen Garabedian. Each pose and activity offers parents the tools to help their babies sleep longer, digest easier, and grow stronger! Parents can’t say enough about the supportive community that Itsy Bitsy Yoga class provides, and the new ways they have come to know and love their babies more deeply through the practice of yoga

ITSY BITSY YOGA FOR TYKES 21 months to 4 years - younger siblings welcome (Celeste LeMieux) Stretch, sing, twirl, jump and balance in this active yoga experience for preschoolers designed by Itsy Bitsy Yoga founder Helen Garabedian. Help bring focus and fun to your tyke’s day with playful breathing activities, “beanie-baby balance poses” and special yoga games to build motor skill confidence, body awareness, and self esteem. Younger siblings are welcome as they get to look up tot their older siblings on how to do certain poses. Full parent participation required, but no yoga experience necessary. Mobile siblings attend at a discounted price of $5/class ~ non-mobile siblings free

YOGA FOR CHILDREN ages 3.9-6, 7-11 (Tara Rachel Jones & Nora Dybdal) Children blossom from the inside out. At times, their pace of movement is much faster than their rate of development. Yoga gives them an opportunity to slow down, reconnect to their natural rhythm, and balance their energy. Each class presents a consistent series of postures to explore flexibility, encourage concentration and stimulate inner curiosity

YOUTH YOGA ages 12-15 (Tara Rachel Jones & Nora Dybdal) As the early teen years unfurl, it can be a challenge to balance a deepening sense of autonomy with the growing responsibility and connection that go with maturity – and  all while body and mind are changing almost daily!  What a wonderful thing to find a place for relaxing, for stories and fun with friends, and discovering tools for inner peace. Youth Yoga explores yogic teachings through flowing series of movements, breathing practices, relaxation and meditation
