Kitsilano yoga classes stretch out for kids
Vancouver's latest yoga studio caters to children and families.
On a recent Tuesday evening, my son was a lion and I was a laughing hyena.
Together we took a family class at Yoga Buttons, the city's newest yoga studio and one of the few that caters to children and teens.
As a group, we worked to come up with a symbolic pose for the animal we each chose. There were horses, hippos, dragons and cobras. It was great to see the excitement build as sounds and facial expressions were added to the standard physical representation of each pose.
