Looking for a yoga class for your little one? Check out Yoga for Kids at the Parents Place in San Rafael. Yoga for Children is for kids ages 2-1/2 to 5 years, and meets Fridays mornings from 11 to 11:45 am.
This four-week series runs from September 7 to 28 and includes a playful interpretation of classical yoga poses with songs, stories, movement, and quiet breath awareness practices. Parents are welcome to participate alongside their little yogis, if they like (parental supervision is required). This introduction to yoga is both fun and educational and helps build concentration and mindfulness in preschool-aged children.
The class is taught by Juliana Birnbaum Fox, MA, a certified doula, midwife assistant, and perinatal yoga instructor. Attendees should wear comfortable clothes that you can stretch in and bring a yoga mat.
