The first Saturday of each month* we hold one of the most wonderful activities you'll experience. Family Yoga at Recess is a playful class filled with both creative partner and individual poses. Inspiration comes from animals to create an interactive introduction to yoga for your 1 to 5 year olds and their loving parents/family members. This time of being present without expectations is a sweet gift and a huge bonding opportunity for families.
A child's job in this song-and play-filled class is to explore and learn through observation, modeling and repetition. Grown-ups are there to connect, model mindfulness and have fun.
While not nearly as serene as your typical yoga class, parent and child yoga classes deliver the same mental and physical benefits as any other yoga class: peace of mind, relaxation, and increased bodily strength and flexibility. The perks don't stop there though. Parent and child yoga classes also offer families the opportunity to come together in a non-competitive and healthy environment. Family yoga is a great way to break away from feeling over-scheduled, stressed-out, and just plain busy.
At Recess we believe that it's crucial to have a place to come and exercise without having to find childcare. And with family classes, of course, childcare isn't needed. But if adult only classes are more your speed, take a look at our fitness schedule. During all of our Pilates and Yoga classes, we have childcare available in the Playspace. And don't worry about taking time away from the kids. When children have the opportunity to watch their moms & dads taking care of themselves, they learn that making time for a healthy lifestyle is a priority. While in childcare, children are ecstatic to enjoy a space all their own with their peers. And during class, parents have an opportunity to connect with other parents, take some time to care for themselves, and share advice and information. We all are in this child-rearing thing together!
It’s Yoga, Kids® mission is to Share the Love of the Practice with children and families. Celebrating 10 years of movement and mindfulness for every age, their proven research based education system for kids – babies to teens – and families relieves stress, facilitates connection and builds life skills. While having fun, kids discipline themselves with body and mind awareness. Over time, these skills are applied in everyday life.
