Yoga at an early age encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's non-competitive. Classes will help children to learn techniques for self-health, relaxation, and inner fulfillment. Benefits from yoga are not only physically- it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. 
 
In addition, a Tibetan Singing bowl will be played at the end of class to improve children's sense of calmness and relaxation. 
 
Join 5 Children's Yoga classes: Exercise, play, connect more deeply with the inner self and develop a relationship with the natural world that surrounds them. 
 
These Classes will be led by Vivian Lee, a certified Bikram Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Vinyasa Yoga instructor who has also been studying Children's Yoga.
