Every class is a safe, welcoming and friendly place to bond with your family and make community connections.
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. Please note: this is not a labour preparation class.
For the Youngest Yogis and their 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 enjoy yoga while on their backs, tummies, or held in loving arms.
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. This is a faster-paced yoga class, because of the tots' newfound mobility and curiosity.
Your tot will playfully practice yoga poses with your assistance, while sitting, standing, walking and jumping. 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! Grown-ups get ready for some playful "show and share" with these fun poses and activities!
For Families with School-Age Children
Yoga offers children the opportunity to gain confidence and self-esteem, develop sound body awareness, find outlets for stress, frustration, and to manage attention.
A regular yoga practice provides a strong foundation in flexibility, stability, agility, strength, and focus.
It can benefit and complement the practice routines of children in music, arts or competitive sports based programs.
YoginiMama classes 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 path of growing up.
Yoga Buds & Blossoms (4+ years to 7 years, with one adult)
