Level 1: For All Students (No experience necessary.) Foundational yoga postures and alignment principles are introduced with progressive instructions to help you develop better flexibility, strength, balance, and body awareness.

Everyone benefits from strengthening their foundational knowledge!

Parent and Child Sing Song Yoga: For Kids ages 2-6 and a Parent. This shorter, action packed Sing Song class is especially for the high energy younger yogi. Added activities and games complement the classic Sing Song yoga poses for a well-rounded experience. You can expect to still find plenty of Music, Movement and Merriment but with a big emphasis on Movement!

Sing Song Yoga: For Kids ages 6 – 11. This unique yoga program designed specifically for kids uses children’s songs to teach the yoga poses. The songs have original lyrics set to the music of traditional children’s songs. The kids learn the songs which supports them in moving through the poses. Sing Song Yoga is a delightful combination of Music, Movement and Merriment!

Individual Instruction: You may request to schedule an individual lesson for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are looking for help in mastering a particular type of pose or need some more attention after returning to practice after a long break or recovering from a significant health issue. If you are brand new to yoga and have more than minor physical concerns, you may also choose to have individual lessons to familiarize yourself with yoga basics and learn modifications that will allow you to join a group class.
