Yoga classes are provided at community organizations, yoga studios, private residences, and our home studio.

Classes can be tailored for a large group or an individual student, and for children ages 2-13. We work with students of all needs and abilities. 

Our yoga classes combine poses, breathing, mindfulness, and fun! And include songs, stories, and games. We are happy to schedule just one class or a series. Please contact us to find out how we can set up a great experience for your kids.

SOCIAL SKILLS

Bala Yoga leads children's groups to improve socials skills and regulation of emotions. We will address the specific skills your child needs to work on. These groups can be provided at schools, meeting rooms, or a family's home. Please contact us to talk about how we can help your children or students become kind and happy friends.
