OUR CHILDREN’S CLASSES ARE DESIGNED TO CELEBRATE THE INNATE CURIOSITY OF CHILDREN.
Each class has been developed with intention, drawing inspiration from mindfulness practices, yoga, occupational therapy, and Reggio Emilia — an early childhood education philosophy which focuses on the importance of relationships and self directed exploration and learning.
BABY AND ME YOGA
(ages 6 weeks to pre - crawling)
Join us on the other side of birth! This is an opportunity for established practitioners and those completely new to yoga to enhance your sense of well-being, connect with your body, gain strength and flexibility and connect with your child in a relaxed and informal environment. If children/babies are willing we will give them gentle massage and movement to facilitate their development. Babies and little ones also enjoy seeing and playing with one another.
HAPPY BABY HAPPY HOUR
(4mo to pre-walking)
Welcome to the world little one. The purpose of this class is two fold - spark curiosity in our littlest yogis while addressing the physical demands of new parenthood. For baby, each class will offer a combination of sensory activities which may include story time, music, and art. For you, movement, breathwork, and short meditations appropriate for the postpartum period will leave you feeling centered and refreshed. This class is a wonderful opportunity to meet other new families in your community.
(walking to 2yo)
First Friends invites you and your toddler into a “yes” space. Join us for a playful hour of exploring changing sensory centers, props, and movement through yoga songs. A relaxed environment for caregivers and their littles focused on inquiry and socialization.
YOGA PLAY DATE
(age 2yo to 5yo)
A yoga adventure for our busiest friends. Language, movement, risk taking - it’s all happening! An hour of songs, stretches, and storytelling will help get the wiggles out and support your preschooler in developing friendships and emotional self regulation.
AFTER SCHOOL RE-SET
(ages 5yo to 8yo and 9yo to 13yo)
Does your child come home from school anxious, tired, “on edge”, or with energy left to burn? Join us for an after school hour of yoga and mindfulness practices meant to ease the tension of the day, promote positive body image and coping mechanisms, and create a safe space for sharing thoughts and feelings if desired. Please note: This class is for students independent of their grownup.
WIGGLE, WOBBLE, AND WONDER
(ages 4yo to 8yo)
A playful class combining yoga and the Wobbel (https://www.wobbel.eu/en/) balance board. Designed to enhance body awareness and stimulate creativity, balance and strength. Alternating between relaxation and exertion, children are invited to make each pose their own and leave class with feelings of accomplishment and pride. Class may also incorporate art, sensory or open ended play at the discretion of the teacher.
