Mindfulness is a buzzword right now, and it should be! Teaching your child how to be present and aware of their mind is a skill that can transform their life. As parents, there are many different skills and lessons you want to instill in your children, but teaching them HOW to be mindful is a foundational skill that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

Studies have shown that practicing mindfulness builds self-confidence, increases concentration, strengthens resiliency, controls anger and decreases stress in children. Yoga is a one of the best ways to teach mindfulness to children, it connects the body and mind together through breath. It teaches them how to slow down and move with consciousness. And it is something YOU can do with them, leading by example and bonding along the way.

Give your child the tools they need to help them cope with the challenges that life presents. When a child is able to first recognize their emotions, then they can better control their emotions and finally they can take action from a place of knowing.  This class is a special opportunity to meet others, get support, and learn about taking care of your new baby. No yoga experience required.

Both five-week classes have experienced and trained teachers. There will be one class for make-ups. Cost $105, plus you’ll get a bonus FREE class for mom to join us at one of our other fitness classes.
