Class Descriptions:

Toddler + Parent Yoga and Ballet, Ages 18 months - 3 Years Old *Parent Participation

Bond with your little one, get them socialized, and make new mommy friends! Learn the basics of yoga and dance while singing popular children's songs, dancing, moving, stretching, and breathing together. Create magical moments that you will never forget. Class starts with yoga on our mats, then moves to dancing, and finishes with fan-favorite 'relaxing pose' and coloring time. Repetition is key for these little ones. Toddlers usually take a few classes to pick up on the flow of class and get comfortable in the new environment with all their new friends. Parents, don't be discouraged if the first class or two are a little rough! If toddlers start to cry or have a tantrum, please step outside and re-enter the room once your child has calmed down. Do not be embarrassed! This is completely normal for this age. They are often over stimulated and not used to listening to a teacher. We are all here to learn together! One parent per child in class, other family members are welcome to quietly observe.

Same as the above, minus the ballet.

 

Preschool + Kinder Yoga and Ballet, Ages 3-6 *Drop off or stay and watch

Children will learn the basics of yoga and ballet in this adorable and imaginative class. Hop like frogs, twirl like fairies, stretch like mermaids...and so much more! Your little one will also learn basic classroom etiquette such as being around other children, waiting their turn, staying in their spot, raising their hand, and listening to the teacher. Class starts with yoga on our mats, then moves to the ballet barre where we learn and review basic ballet technique while using our imaginations, followed by dancing around the room working on basic traveling ballet steps, jumps, and free movement. Class always finishes with fan-favorite 'relaxing pose' and coloring time. During relaxing pose students are encouraged to relax their mind and body using guided meditation, props, lavender essential oils, and more. Each month we recite and discuss a new mantra such as "I Am Kind," "I Am Happy," "I Am Calm" and more.

We often practice public speaking and allow students to take turns leading small portions of class. Class always finishes with fan-favorite 'relaxing pose' and coloring/journaling time.
