Exciting partnership announcement

Exciting partnership announcement

I know, as a mom, how challenging it is to find the time to get to a great fitness class. That was the thought when we started offering our Tuesday 6pm “Yoga for You. Yoga for Your Kids.” Same time, separate classes. A chance for you to get to yoga and your kids, too. Hooray!

But what about something like this during the day? Friends… it’s happening!

I’m thrilled to announce our new partnership with M/Body — one of Rochester’s very best fitness studios. Together, we are offering YOU the opportunity to take a great class while your kids do too.

Building connections and so much more.

Building connections and so much more.

I didn't grow up in Rochester but even though I'm not born and raised, I absolutely the sense of community here. Going to Wegmans? For SURE you'll see someone you know. Heading to a park? You'll probably bump into a friend. Walking on the canal? Yup, give a wave to several familar faces. It's kind of this unique "big-little" city with a whole lot of connections.

Classes for ages 3-5, new Rec Center partner, and more!

Classes for ages 3-5, new Rec Center partner, and more!

Honestly, there is nothing cuter than preschoolers doing yoga. Yoga...a 5,000 year old practice that preschoolers are really, really GOOD at. Downward dog? A hands down favorite. (Yes, we might occassionally bark!) Breathing work to calm our hearts? The kids ask for it in every class. Tricky poses? They can't get enough. Shavasana time to recenter? So great, even for the littlest yogis. 

This Fall, classes for preschoolers can be found at several Rec Centers around our community, including our newest partner, Webster Rec Center! And if you are planning ahead, enrollment is already open for most classes. Details within!

Yoga for You. Yoga for Your Kids. Meet the summer line-up!

Yoga for You. Yoga for Your Kids. Meet the summer line-up!

Last summer, we introduced "Yoga for You. Yoga for Your Kids", a chance for kids and parents to come to yoga together, but each take their own class. Parents in one room, kids right next door. And now, a year later, "Yoga for You. Yoga for Your Kids." is a regular Tuesday 6PM event, bringing parents and kids together with yoga. 

This summer, I'm excited to once again team up with talented adult instructors from around our community. We've brought together a great team of teachers that are all here to offer YOU the chance to take a great class. Check out the summer line-up and see you on the mat!

Helpful breathing tips (and how to do them)

Helpful breathing tips (and how to do them)

"Take a deep breath." We've all heard it, said it, or thought it, right? And for good reason. Our breath has SO much power to change the way we feel. It's pretty incredible. Proper breathing is a game changer to improve athletic performance, calm anxiety, and clear our minds. We start every Butterfly Kids Yoga class practicing breathwork and we always use what we learn throughout class. Here are 2 great techniques for you to try at home.
