It's never too early to start playful movement classes! Our classes enable preschool children to practice healthy habits from an early age! YogaButtons classes develop children's emotional, social and physical wellness. You can book any individual class or multiple class dates (ie. weekly) every term. Register online and join a class anytime!
MusicButtons (1-5 years old):
Meike and Flo, Meike's furry stuffy sidekick, will allow your kids to build confidence and self-expression through creative music instruction. Sing, dance and play with shakers, triangles, rhythm sticks, scarves and balloons. Participants move to music and learn about rhythm. We clap, sing, dance, animal role play and have lots of fun! Offered Fridays from 9:30-10:30am.
BalletButtons Dance (2 - 5 years old)
Teacher Sintija will lead the BalletButtons through a class that will introduce ballet movements set to classical music, nursery rhymes and song. This will give the dancers the opportunity to develop their musicality, creativity, rhythm and self-expression in an engaging environment. The class will start at the bar then move into the studio space, allowing dancers to improve their flexibility and coordination which are the core elements of dance.
We will use props like scarves, ribbon wands, balls and the parachute to help to develop body awareness.
Wear your favourite ballet costume if you like and let's have fun! No previous experience in ballet or dance required. Mondays at 11:30am and/or Wednesdays at 1:30pm. Register for any individual class or multiple dates this Fall.
BabyButtons Yoga (1-2 years old with adult)
In this fun first movement class, baby with adult (parent or caregiver) will explore playful yoga and creative movement. Together we will sing, dance and move to nursery rhymes, movement songs, storybook adventures and yoga songs.
We will relax with music, feathers and bubbles, as well as get energized through movement games like scarf dancing, glow ball parties and parachute play. Adult and baby will try some partner yoga poses, like double-butterfly, down dog tunnel and happy baby! Tunnel time, shaker dancing and ball play keep babies learning about their bodies and movement in a fun and playful way. Join us any Monday at 9:15am starting September 13!
LittleButtons Yoga (2 - 5 years old)
LittleButtons are introduced to traditional yoga poses, inspired by animals and nature. Stories and songs are used to promote imaginative play and drama through yoga movement. Kids learn to move and stretch their bodies safely while exploring age-appropriate developmental concepts such as stories, shapes, animals, patterns and colours.
LittleButtons gain a deeper understanding of their natural environment and themselves through yoga. Yoga poses and breathing exercises are introduced to kids during class to promote relaxation and develop fitness skills. LittleButtons go on storybook adventures and bring stories to life through visualization, role-play and drama.
LittleButtons flutter like butterflies, hop like frogs, curl like cats, stand rooted like trees, crawl like caterpillars and investigate the natural world through playful yoga.
