Try yoga for kids for a little zen in your household! Yoga stimulates the physical, mental and emotional abilities of a child. It can also manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation and healthy movement. Yoga classes can introduce children to a healthy lifestyle; it's a fun way to increase confidence and positive self-image in a non-competitive environment. Here are our favorite studios around Columbus that offer yoga classes for kids.
Hannah Scott: The goal of Kids Yoga at Bexley Yoga is to help children with self-awareness, self care, and stress management.
