J9 Kids' Yoga

t is never too early to start practicing yoga! Yoga poses, breathing exercises, yoga songs and games are incorporated into this 60-minute yoga class for up to twelve children between the ages of 3 and 7. Rest and meditation are important aspects of the class as well. Children are natural yogis; they have a blast exploring their new moves while building strong body and breath awareness, cooperative skills, and self-confidence. Namaste, kids!
