Classes FAQs
Is Kids Yoga safe and how do you keep them engaged?
That’s what we do. We don’t rely on props or other forms of entertainment. Yoga, taught properly, does the full work of engaging kids at every age. We incorporate baby massage, song, storytelling, poetry, meditation, and journaling as appropriate to develop the whole child. The IYK® Signature Series supports development naturally throughout childhood and adolescence. Students are never put in unnatural positions. Our top priority is safety and effectiveness.
