Yoga for Kids

Here it’s okay to make noise, it’s okay to be a bit fidgety, it’s okay to just move however the body feels like moving—no corrections needed. The best part about yoga for kids is that you can do it as a family, and with practices available to stream at home, you’ll find classes that can fit any busy schedule.
