Kids of all ages and abilities can benefit from the practice of yoga. Yoga builds strength, balance, flexibility, body awareness, concentration, and self-confidence. Beginning to practice yoga at a young age also gives kids a solid foundation for managing stress and making healthy choices. This 45 minute Yoga suitable for kids 2 to 7 years old, is designed to get families practicing yoga together in a kid-friendly way. (Mom, Dad or a caregiver will participate along with their toddler.) Each class includes yoga and movement, breath work, and kid-friendly meditation/relaxation, all tied together with a kid friendly theme. We’d love it if you’d come out and play with us!
This class is a wonderful way to connect with your baby while stretching, moving, and relaxing your body. A typical class includes calming breath, stretching, slow vinyasa sequences, standing poses and relaxation all with a hard working, postpartum body in mind. Includes strong core-work to engage and restore the postpartum core in a gentle and loving way. The babies can join in on almost all of the poses and have their own yoga and massage session towards the end of class. It is beneficial and suitable for all yogis – new, experienced and still in diapers!
There is no charge for siblings under one year of age.
Music Together® is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for infant, toddler and preschool children and their parents or caregiver. It is a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum that strongly emphasizes adult involvement. In the class, children learn by watching and listening to their adult role models. Each week they experience new songs, chants, movement activities, and instrumental jam sessions.
Through music, the children learn basic motor skills, vocabulary, hand-eye coordination, the basic beat and how to sing in tune. Music Together™ is based on the idea that all babies are born with musical talent. With exposure to music at a young age, that talent will blossom and last a lifetime. The Music Together® program began in 1987 and is now enjoyed by thousands of families in the United States and abroad. For further information about Music Together® visit www.musictogether.com

At The Family Garden we celebrate you and your little ones, and we recognize how important it is for you to take the time to learn, socialize and care for yourself. That is where our childcare program comes in!
We offer child care in our beautifully equipped child care room during many classes and programs. Not every class has child care available, so please double check the listing to verify availability. We recommend you come a little early to sign your child in and get them settled. Child care is first come, first served so for some of the busier classes there is always a chance that our child care room will have reached capacity and we will not be able to accommodate your child. There will be a charge of $4/child for drop in child care or you may purchase a child care punch card – 5 punches for $18.75 – 10 punches for $35 or 20 punches for $60. Please view our Child Care Policies page for more details.
