Tots & Tykes Yoga (crawlers to 4yr) – 45 minutes, no yoga mat needed. This class is focused on the growing mobility of the child as the move to crawling, standing and walking. It is yoga for the 4 and under crowd so there are rhymes, songs, games, and yoga poses geared toward their development. The class is a fun way to introduce yoga to your child and share in the experience of exploring new skills, through repetition and interaction with other children their age. An adult must participate with the child but no previous yoga experience is required. Siobhan Carranza teaches the class and pulls from her training as a yoga teacher for 11+ yrs, and Itsy Bitsy Yoga Facilitator, and training with Radiant Child Yoga. The class is a series for the child so the pass is separate from regular adult classes.
