Family Yoga

Fridays at 10:30 AM

Join us for family yoga on the Library lawn. This is a joyful way for children to explore movement and develop physical skills, learn yoga poses through active imagination, and creatively channel energy by following movement instruction and practicing calming moments.

This energetic class teaches body awareness and basic teacher/student dynamic using sing-along and movement to act out favorite animals, nursery rhymes, and songs. Children also learn how they can use their breath and other skills to calm themselves down when feeling silly or upset.

Bring your own blanket or mat. We ask that you continue to wear a mask while attending in-person programs. Participants are asked to remain socially distanced and masks will be required until you are sitting with your family group. Registration required.
