Class Descriptions

Below, read more about my family-based yoga programs. Every class is a safe, welcoming and friendly place to bond with your family and make community connections.

To be able to offer these classes, I teach at several locations. Links to schedule and location information are at the bottom of this page and are updated from time to time.

I look forward to sharing a little yoga with you and your little ones soon.

For Expectant Families
Yoga for Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a time of extraordinary change for your body and life. It is an exciting time. It can also be an overwhelming time. Each pregnancy is unique and so these classes give you the chance to explore a variety of poses and breathing practices that can bring comfort and restfulness to your body and happiness and calm to your mind.
 
Take this time to nurture yourself. There will be ample time for discussion and to share your pregnancy experiences. Have fun, feel supported by other moms-to-be in the class, and look forward to friendships that will grow after little ones arrive. No previous yoga experience is required.
 
Please note: this is not a labour preparation class and it should not replace the healthcare schedule and program you are currently following. It is intended for enjoyment and as an addition to a fit, healthy lifestyle during pregnancy. 
For New Families
Mom Yoga (pre-crawling and newly-crawling babies welcome)
A great class to get you out and about with your pre-crawling little one! Enjoy taking the time to stretch and release the tension from your new mom body. Particular attention is given to each mom's healing and energy, to ensure your experience is positive and useful for your day-to-day. Depending on their energy and need, babies will join us for some of the poses.
Baby Yoga (newborn to almost crawler, with one adult)
Explore dozens of yoga poses designed specifically to be enriching for your baby and to support developmental movement discoveries. Each class is filled with calming, nurturing ways to enhance bonding, aid baby’s digestion and improve sleep patterns.
Babies will enjoy yoga while on their backs, tummies or held in loving arms. For parents, this class is a special opportunity to meet other moms, get support and learn about baby’s emerging personality. Most of the yoga we do in this class is for baby, but for moms, we always find time for some breathing and relaxation practice.
Tot Yoga (able crawler to 24 months, with one adult)
These classes are creative, fun-loving and active. Watch tots become more confident as they are encouraged and supported in their physical explorations. Your tot will playfully practice yoga poses with your assistance, while sitting, standing, walking and jumping.
This is a faster-paced yoga class, because of the tots' newfound mobility and curiosity. Parents will still find time for quiet breathing and relaxation practice.
Tyke Yoga (2 years to 4 years, with one adult)
Yoga poses, songs, stories and games are combined to create an enriching parent/child activity. Designed to suit your Tyke's curiosities while learning yoga through social interaction, repetition and play. Learn to relieve frustration, improve motor skills, and increase attention span.
Help your tyke build the foundation for a healthy and fit lifestyle while having fun! No yoga experience is required. This is a parented program, so you will be "showing and sharing" the fun poses and activities with your tyke.
For Families of School Age Children
Yoga provides children the opportunity to gain confidence and self-esteem, develop sound body awareness, find outlets for stress and frustration and to manage attention.
 
These programs are intentionally designed as "parented" programs, so that parents may glean the benefits of a regular yoga practice for themselves. Additionally, this is an opportunity to form deeper connections and bonding with your kids as they navigate the often tricky waters of growing up.
Yoga provides a strong foundation in flexibility, stability, agility, strength and focus. A Yoga practice can be beneficial to children in music or arts-based programming. It can also complement the performance of any children that participate in martial arts, team sports, dance, or any other physical or competitive activity.

Yoga Buds & Blossoms (4 years to 7 years, with one adult)

Both boys and girls are sure to enjoy this class filled with poses, games, movement, noises, breathing and loads of laughter. Classes are designed to engage and challenge children, regardless of age; developmental movement being key to exploring each and every pose. Parents will delight in showing-and-sharing all that the class brings. Independent practice, partner poses and group activities ensure these classes are fun for all.
 
Parent & Youth Yoga (8 years to 13 years, with one adult)
This program offers a great opportunity for an adult and their growing youth to practice as partners and experience hatha yoga together. Calming breathing practices and partner poses help you strengthen your bond. Games and group activities help families develop a sense of community. We practice to discover and challenge our stability, strength, flexibility and focus. This practice can complement and enhance your performance in athletics, dance, martial arts and even in preparation for the pressures of school and social situations.
Teams, Schools, Small Groups & Parties
I welcome your requests for one-time workshop style yoga classes, or ongoing weekly series for your kids' teams and schools. Or maybe you'd like to gather a close group of friends and their families for a customized yoga experience. I can also work with you to create a fun birthday activity!
Send me an email and let's brainstorm the perfect yoga practice together!
