The daily dash from school to soccer practice to dance lessons leaves little time for parents (and kids) to find some calm in their days. But there’s an easy way to slow down and refocus—add yoga to your family’s routine. In addition to yoga’s many benefits for adults, it can help little yogis’ physical health and mental well-being as well as increase their flexibility, strength and coordination and help them relax, focus and boost their self-confidence. If you’re ready to give yoga a try with your kids, scroll down for a list of our favorite places.

Be One Yoga Studio

Be One Yoga aims to spark a child’s inner yogini by mixing in music, crafts, picture books, puppets and more. Kids ages 3-13 can take age-appropriate classes to help them practice yoga skills, giving them a greater sense of body awareness and interpersonal skills through balancing poses, breathing exercises and cooperative games. Classes are conveniently scheduled during adult hot yoga, so the whole family can practice at the same time.
