Yoga offers physical and mental health benefits to practitioners of any age. For Kids, yoga is taught using a games-based approach that creates a fun, creative and energising environment for your child to engage in an activity that strengthens their body, mind and spirit.

In The Happy Yogi’s kids yoga classes, we create a fun and engaging class for your child through the integration of themes and stories with yoga poses, yoga tools, breathing exercises and other mindfulness-building activities. The classes are designed to help your child reap all the benefits of practicing yoga related to mental & physical focus, strength, balance, flexibility, and overall health.


If you are looking for a yoga session so your child can learn yoga, do some exercise, and most importantly have fun, join our yoga for kids every Saturday morning in Charlesland Centre, Greystones.
