Kids Yoga Classes
Bend + Bloom kids yoga classes enable kids to indulge in yoga fun while parents and caregivers enjoy their own serene practice in the adjacent studio. Alternatively, parents and children can practice together in our interactive Tots & Family classes.
Benefits of B+B Kids Yoga
Yoga is a fun way for kids to cultivate self-esteem and body awareness. By mimicking animals and shapes in nature kids develop strength, flexibility, coordination and an appreciation for our environment. Classes allow children to imagine and experience the qualities of other beings—the strength of a wise, old tree; the confidence of a lion; the grace of the wind; the speed of the F train! As kids indulge in imaginative yoga play, they learn to focus, cooperate with peers, and to use their breath to find inner calm – tools important for their daily lives.
Tots & Family Yoga Classes
These classes offer a special time for parents or caregivers to connect with their baby or young child and begin to plant the seeds for a lifetime of yoga and wellness together.
