Special Family Classes – Unplug & Be Mindful Yoga

Yoga for Youth Athletes

Wednesdays 4pm-5pm

$10

In this weekly yoga practice, we will focus on stretching and strengthening areas of the body that athletes need such as the hip flexors, low back and the neck.
We will also focus on strengthening the core to increase low back stability and use Yin postures to get into the plantar fascia, IT band and the psoas muscles.
In addition to the physical elements of the practice, the athletes will learn how they can access the breath in times of stress and mindfulness techniques to assist them in their daily lives.

Yoga for the Anxious Child Ages 7 and Up with Parent/Caregiver

Cost: $15 parent/child; $5 extra adult and child; $3 extra child

This class is for anxious children and their caregivers. If your child is like mine, then your child is more comfortable amongst other adults and YOU than in an all kids class. In this class the parent and child will be able to learn yoga and mindfulness tools together to activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

Common questions:

‘Can I bring more than one child?’ Of course.

‘Can more than one adult attend?’ Of course. We welcome all families.

‘Does my child need to have anxiety to benefit from this class?’ Absolutely not. The poses, breathwork and multisensory experience can benefit everyone.

‘What if my child can’t sit still?’ That’s ok. There is plenty of space in the studio for your child to explore or take a break when needed.

Please let us know in advance if your child has any allergies to essential oils such as Lavender.

Melissa also works with children and their caregivers privately. If interested please call or email melissa@unplugyoga.com
