Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means "union". All yoga classes have the foundation of union in them but none quite like a family class. Strengthen, build and nurture your special connection with family members by participating in this dynamic class. This playful class is geared toward children and their family members and incorporates movement, yoga postures, games, partner poses and time to connect with each other through mindfulness activities. Only one class pass is used per family.

This class is for you, mama. Ease the aches and build strength to rise to the new challenges of caring for this little baby. Designed to nurture and energize you from around 6 weeks postpartum until your baby is crawling all over the place (in which case, you should come to Moms & Movers instead!) Never done a yoga class? There's a first time for everything.
6 months - 2 years
The best kind of chaos - nurture yourself with a safe and challenging yoga practice while the kids crawl and toddle around us. You may get climbed on or under, but you will leave class feeling better than when you started. Dads are welcome too!! (Are you having to spend too much of your Mom & Baby class chasing your suddenly mobile little one before they poke that newborn baby in the face? Graduate to Moms & Movers, where all the babies are in the same crazy boat.)
