Want to inspire your kiddo to slow down, go with the flow and embrace his/her inner zen? We’ve found 7 local yoga studios where young yogis are stretching beyond child’s pose and eagerly hopping on their mats (or magic carpets!)–– proving that the ancient practice is just the activity that many modern kids need the most. Keep calm and read ‘om’ to see where kids will want to namaste the day away.
Next Generation Yoga teachers demonstrate and engage kids in developmentally appropriate yoga poses, breathing exercises, chanting, meditation and relaxation techniques. The kids and family yoga classes emphasize lessons in creativity, self-acceptance, interpersonal skills, positive thinking, personal and environmental awareness and fun. Next Generation Yoga offers family classes, as well as classes for little yogis ages 1 to 10. Classes are offered throughout San Diego County and prices vary by class and location.
