Q. Do you offer yoga for kids?
We will be offering Kids yoga and/or Mommy & Me Yoga class series seasonally – watch for announcements. Kids ages 8 ‐ 17 are welcome to join group classes and have a special, reduced rate. All kids who express interest and want to try yoga are always encouraged to join! Those that have had exposure to yoga through their families or experience in a focused sport or other practice have been highly successful in yoga. Use good judgment when you choose to bring your youngster to class with you. They may be asked to sit away from you so they (and you) are not distracted by trying to help them, the instructor will give them the attention they need for a safe experience. Yoga practice is an individual process. Your children will learn self‐control, to listen, and to trust themselves, and the instructors ‐ just as you do!

All Essentials Yoga and Wellness classes are appropriate for beginners. We offer small, personalized classes (8‐10 max) in two beautiful locations. Essentials Yoga Instructors are experienced, passionate and caring, and they are here to serve you ‐ don’t hesitate to communicate.
