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.

When it comes to a good challenge in yoga, kids are ALL about it. Teens? Crow pose or working on their flexibility and mobility. Tweens? Partner poses are their jam. Double downward dog, anyone? Little yogis? Balancing in boat, flower or crane pose. But the most challenging pose of all? It's the simplicity of unwinding. Of just allowing themselves to lie back, relax, and let go.
