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!
For all our preschool age classes (1-5yrs): one adult only must attend and share a mat with 1 year olds (*mandatory) and 2/3 years olds until they can fully and safely participate on their own (teacher discretion). We recommend drop-off when possible (teacher will advise when this is appropriate for your child). Age 4+ years is drop-off only. For drop-off, kids must be able to fully and safely participate on their own (and be potty trained).
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.
Winter schedule: Wednesdays 9:30-10:15am (Jan 5 - Mar 9, 2022)
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.
Winter schedule: Tuesdays 3:30-4:30pm, Wednesdays 10:30-11:30am, Fridays 9:30-10:30am & 10:45-11:45am (yoga/dance combo class), Saturdays 9:15-10:15am (starting Jan 4, 2022).
