Children’s Yoga

“Yoga is a powerful universal system for helping children stay focused, centered, and peaceful which, in turn, helps them concentrate better, learn more, and gain physical and mental health throughout their lives.  Highly recommended.”  Dean Ornish, M.D. Founder and President, Preventive Medicine Research Center, CA

When children learn self-care, relaxation, and contentment, they can navigate life’s challenges with a little more ease.  Children’s yoga builds confidence and body awareness in a positive, noncompetitive setting.  Cooperation and compassion, along with flexibility and movement, are wonderful gifts we can give our children.

When your child takes a Bound for Bliss Children’s Yoga class they discover a whole new world:

  • Yoga will be fun!
  • We explore balancing and animal poses, songs, stories and games.
  • Breathing and relaxation exercises reduce children’s stress.
  • Our classes improve concentration, social skills, and self-expression.
  • Starting now encourages children to continue yoga as they grow.

Did we mention, the kids have a blast in a non-competitive environment?!
