For babies and toddlers who are crawling to 24 months with a caregiver
Tot Yoga is a supportive, fun-loving, and active yoga class. As tot’s mobility increases, classes offer tot-centric poses that encourage and support their physical explorations. Toddlers become more confident in their moving bodies as they practice yoga both in and out of class. During a Tot Yoga class, crawlers and walkers playfully practice yoga postures while they are standing, sitting up, walking, and jumping. Parents also get to do a little yoga, but no yoga experience is required.
Tot Yoga Benefits for Toddlers:
• Deepen the parent/child bond
• Improve body-awareness
• Playfully relieve stress and frustration
• Increase your child’s attention span
• Provide an outlet for social interaction
• Nurture self-esteem and creativity
• Build a fit, healthy lifestyle
What to Bring/Wear:
Please dress yourself and your toddler comfortably. Yoga mats are not used for this class.
What You're Saying:
"My daughter enjoyed the predictability of the class each week. After 4 week of class, she started to recognize and participate more in the songs/activities. Her favorite materials were the tunnel and bubbles! She enjoys the songs March-Along Yogi, Hop-Along Yogi, and I Love You. We look forward to attending class again!" ~ Andrea B.
"My daughter and I enjoyed the class very much. My daughter even remembers the yoga poses and does them at home." ~ Mai T.
"I love spending time with my little one & seeing him grow and learn. It's so great to see him do a yoga move/pose at home on his own!" ~ H.Cook
"We are getting ready for baby number 3 and ready once again for Childlight Yoga's classes for toddlers! :) You definitely helped Kayla be confident and lead with her large heart helping her open up. I'll never forget her fairy bday party age 3. She has now just turned 6.... Full day kindergarten. See you soon for the next round! Can't wait! Kind regards, K. K. Roskilly
FAQ: Why session based classes for this age group, versus drop-in?
We engage toddlers/preschoolers in yoga practice in ways that are meaningful, appropriate, and inviting to them! This means our classes will look quite different from an adult yoga class (no experience necessary!) as we regularly incorporate music, creative movement, props, stories, games, etc. Toddlers/Preschoolers THRIVE on repetition, familiarity, and predictability and to honor this we unfortunately do not offer a drop-in option for the Tot or Little Family classes. The session-based classes provide children with the opportunity they need to become familiar with the instructor, the group, and the routine established in class. This truly makes a difference in the atmosphere of the class and foster's children's confidence, participation, and overall well-being. If you find after a few classes that it's truly not a good fit for your family, please talk to the instructor or the office and we'll gladly work with you. We strive to make our young yogi's practice fulfilling for them!
