Baby & Me Yoga
Incorporate your baby into yoga your yoga poses. Take time to stretch and massage baby. This is a wonderful bonding opportunity for parents to feel supported and relaxed as they bond with their baby. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with other parents. This class is like a time out for mommies and daddies. A really good one. The beauty of a yoga practice is that it gives us space; space to see the unique and beautiful being before us and within.
Post Natal Core Restore
Get back into shape with baby! Pilates and elements of yoga is a fabulous way to restore your core. Core is essential in the rehabilitating after childbirth. After birth there isn’t much time to restore. Attention to restoring the deep abdominal muscles, pelvic floor engagement and alignment of our spine help us to maintain optimal alignment for lifting, feeding and running after little ones. A side effect may be a reduced waistline- but we haven’t heard any complaints yet.
Toddlers are so busy these days! They are learning to communicate, interact with others, express themselves and explore the world. It looks like all fun and games but… it’s hard work! Toddler Yoga is an awesome balance of structure (learning songs, yoga poses and practicing sharing and listening skills) along with relaxation and ways to calm and restore their busy nervous system. Our goal is that your little one learns and practices age appropriate skills in a balanced and fun way that honors all the changes the body and brain are undergoing during this stage of development.
This playful yoga class is the perfect way to introduce your child to the joys of yoga. In preschool yoga your child will learn body awareness while supporting social and emotional learning and building confidence. Your child will begin his/her yogic journey with animated breathing techniques, playful yoga poses and themed stories and songs.
School Age Yoga
This is an awesome opportunity to move the body and create a mindfulness practice. All classes start with a Check In, incorporate Breathe-work, Asana (Yoga Postures), Savasana(integration) and a Mindfulness Activity whether mindful crafting, meditation, games or sound healing. The intention is to experience the empowerment and peace that come from a solid practice grounded in our innate ability to tap into all the good stuff that already exists within. By calming the nervous system and restoring balance in the body we can open our heart to ourselves and our community.
