Kid's and Tween Yoga

Sparkle Kid’s Yoga is a form of yoga that is designed specifically for children. It includes poses that increase strength, flexibility, and coordination.  Kid’s Yoga includes classes for younger kids, and Tweens.

The yoga classes for the younger kids are intended to be fun and may include age-appropriate games, animal sounds and creative names for poses.

Of course families are welcome to join their child and practice yoga with them.”Sparklers”, the name of our family yoga classes, will include learning about and practicing yoga, mindfulness, meditation and breathing exercises!

 

Being taught yoga and meditation at a young age will help children live a more peaceful life.

 

Our tween classes are for kids a bit older and who want a more experienced class, but not quite a power class.

No matter the age or experience level we have a yoga class for your child.
